What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You: The importance of family violence screening tools for family law practitioners


FVST Working Group

In order to draw on the expertise of a broad base of professionals, an FVST Working Group was assembled to support the research, analysis and development of recommendations. Members of the Working Group included lawyers, health care professionals, mediators, academics and violence against women advocates. This group collaborated with the research team to provide contextual knowledge and experience and to broker access to FVSTs previously or currently being used in practice. These members also provided feedback on the report. A list of the Working Group members appears in Appendix A.
