I have just discovered one of the most valuable resources for domestic violence victims and survivors I’ve seen to date: “Beyond Escaping: A domestic violence booklet with additional information for survivors.” Resources and information needed by your clients dealing with domestic violence, as well as detailed instructions about how to protect themselves and their children, are contained in this 12-page, easy-to-read pamphlet.
This valuable resource was compiled by the Michigan Women’s Commission in August 2005. Important subjects such as:
- Personal Safety Plan
- Information on child custody
- Internet safety with comprehensive instructions on how to safeguard your online accounts and information
- How to obtain a personal protection order
- How to obtain a lawyer
You can view, print, or download a copy of this 12-page document here. Distribute it to clients with domestic violence issues to assist them in assessing and managing their legal and personal safety issues.
This concise 12-page booklet is a compilation of various resources. The commission included materials from the following:
(b) a brochure from the Michigan Women’s Commission,
(c) A Guide to Personal Protection Orders provided by Michigan Department of Community Health and the Michigan Domestic Violence Prevention and Treatment Board,
(d) a brochure on stalking produced by the Michigan Women’s Commission,
(e) the Michigan Domestic Violence Prevention and Treatment Board,
(f) ‘A Citizen’s Guide to Michigan Anti-Stalking Laws: Stalking Understanding your rights’ produced by the Department of Human Services and the Michigan Department of Community Health,
(g) information on legal services from the Michigan Bar Association.
There are many agencies available to help women in Asian and Asian-American families to escape and/or to prevent family violence. See, for example:
