When evaluating domestic violence lethality, research demonstrates that location matters. For example, rural women endure more severe violence and experience a higher risk of lethality. Delayed law enforcement response times, coupled with greater distances to life-saving medical intervention, increases the risk of fatality. Domestic Violence High Risk Teams are essential in rural areas as a result, yet few communities have them in place. This session will help organizations determine which partners to include in their high-risk team, as well as how to overcome the various challenges of collaboration. The presenters will review the strategies they have implement to successfully to domestic violence cases in rural communities.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Determine which community partners to include in the team.
  • Identify potential challenges in case coordination.
  • Develop a multidisciplinary response to domestic violence in rural areas.
  • Implement a practice of high-risk case management for best outcomes of domestic violence.
