Mindfulness in Domestic Violence Work: Working with Victims (Part I)

Sara Mahoney, Allegany County Probation Department 

Although utilizing trauma-informed principles is a beneficial tool when successfully serving clients who are victims of domestic violence and sexual violence, going a step further by being mindful will get you that much further with this population. This webinar will examine why being self-aware of our own judgments, beliefs and attitudes is so important in our work with victims. More importantly, it is this awareness that could have a profound impact on our work within this field-it could be the difference between life or death for the victims we serve.

In Part I of this two-part series, we will look at the importance of being mindful when working with victims of domestic violence. Topics of discussion will include:

  • A description of mindfulness
  • Research to support the importance of being aware of our judgments,
  • Beliefs and attitudes when working these cases
  • Potential problems that may arise in working with victims and offenders when we let these judgments get in the way.

Be sure to join us June 20 for Part 2 when we examine mindfulness when working with Domestic Violence Offenders.
