    There is a woman in Florida who was sent to jail for not testifying against her attacked. Her attacker was her husband. She defied a court order when she didn't show up at his trial.  Advocates say she was scared, and that it happens all the time that a victim doesn't face her abuser in court. They say most judges understand and don't revictimize the victim by punishing her.  Some say a court order is a court order, and if witnesses don't appear in court, criminials get off. That's just the way it is.  So who's right?

    There's been a push for years to have doctors, nurses, and health care folks to become more involved in screening and treating victims of intimate partner violence. There have been flyers taped in bathrooms, brochures stacked in waiting rooms, and once in a while a quesion about domestic violence on an intake form. But what are we really doing, is this the appropriate response, and what can we do better?

    Project Connect, a program funded by the Department of Human Serivces, has trained doctors and nurses about how to talk with patients about domestic violence and sexual assault, and that can be a tough thing to do.

    Lisa James, Director of Health at Futures Without Violence, has worked with experts in medicine, violence and policy to work out an effective health care response to abuse. She is a recipient of the American Medical Association's Citation for Distinguished Service for her efforts to train health care provicers on domestic violence, and she coordinates the biennial National Conference on Health Care and Domestic Violence.

    Join us as we discuss the role of health care providers in helping victims of sexual and domestic violence.

            Do you know that the Leadership Council estimates nearly 60,000 kids a year are forced by the courts to be with an unsafe parent? One article in Family and Intimate Partner Violence Quarterly (spring 2013) reported 175 documented cases of kids killed by their fathers after the court disregarded their mothers’ concerns about safety for children – and that was in just a two year period! So what’s up with the courts? How can this happen?

            One reason is that the courts are using junk science and a skewed idea of “fairness” in determining child custody.  One researcher found that courts often misuse psychological science in custody litigation. And instead of recognizing what can be dangerous to children, family courts see themselves as fair and balanced and those concerned with abuse as ideologues with an ax to grind. The losers?  As usual, it’s the children.

            Joan Meier, attorney and Professor of Clinical Law AT George Washington University is a nationally recognized expert on domestic violence and the law, appellate litigation and clinical law education. She founded several interdisciplinary domestic violence clinical programs, which have been recognized by the US Department of Justice as models for such organizations. She trains attorneys, judges and other court professionals and was awarded the Cahn Award from the National Equal Justice Library.

    Join us as we explore her research and the startling findings about how courts can disregard danger for children and use junk science in determining child custody, often times to the detriment and danger of the children involved.

    Faces of 5-Year-Old Black Boys Appears to Trigger Thoughts of Guns and Violence

    in News

    According to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Iowa, racial stereotypes affect black boys as young as five years old.

    White participants in the study were more likely to view a toy as a weapon if it was associated with black boys, reports The Daily Mail.  Those who participated in the study were less likely to view a toy as a weapon if it were associated with a white boy.

    Seeing the face of a black boy was enough for the white students in the study to misidentify the toy as a weapon.

    Lead researcher, Dr. Andrew Todd, said this study shows how people who don’t view themselves as racist can still react with unconscious bias.

    “Our findings suggest that, although young children are typically viewed as harmless and innocent, seeing faces of five-year-old Black boys appears to trigger thoughts of guns and violence,” Dr Todd said.

    “One of the most pernicious stereotypes of Black Americans, particularly black men, is that they are hostile and violent,” he explained.

    “So pervasive are these threat-related associations that they can shape even low-level aspects of social cognition.”

    The white college students were shown images of black five-year-olds and white five-year-olds. Then they were shown a second image which they were told to identify as quickly as possible. Participants recognized guns quicker after seeing images of black boys. They were also quicker to mistake toys for guns after viewing images of black boys.
