Successful Rules Reduction Implementation Process in DV Shelters: From Vision to Practice

Featured Presenters: Dr. Shanti Joy Kulkarni, Researcher

Researcher Dr. Shanti Joy Kulkarni will join NCADV to explore the topic of successful rules reduction in domestic violence shelters.  

Domestic violence shelters provide safety for survivors to consider their options and heal from abuse. Unfortunately, many, survivors report negative experiences associated with shelter rule and policy enforcement. Philosophically, rule heavy environments run counter to trauma-informed service-delivery principles. Rules, such as curfew and conduct guidelines, decrease access to community social networks. Staff rule enforcement may also trigger survivors’ past experiences with abusive control and structural racism and deter safe, trusting relationships between staff and residents.  

This webinar will share findings from experts interviewed about best practices for successful implementation of rules reduction.
