Domestic Violence Characteristics offers judicial educators an unprecedented, cost-effective way to provide distance learning on domestic violence. Domestic Violence Characteristics includes: a video (entitled "Making a Difference") and a curriculum detailing how to use the video to conduct distance learning programs for judges. The video outlines five key learning points about domestic violence that can affect judges' decisions. These points are demonstrated through realistic dramatic scenarios, followed by discussion by judges and domestic violence experts on how to apply this new information on the bench. The video is also an ideal tool for classroom-style judicial education programs, and can be purchased separately.
