CAFC will soon be announcing an explosive update regarding some more major domestic violence reform that is currently in the works. If you were impressed with the change in language for the Safe at Homes Program Web site and our success in the Woods case, then you will be left breathless over what we promise will be a groundbreaking development. We cannot release any specifics yet, but we can say that it is a direct result of our historic domestic violence conference that we held in Sacramento last February 2008. Many representatives from various states' judiciary branches and criminal justice departments attended the conference. As a result, one state representative was so impressed with all of the evidence-based data and presentations, that they have completely redrafted their policy regarding domestic violence treatment programs, and the way domestic violence is viewed by all. We have seen the drafts for the reforms, and to say that they are a radical positive change is an understatement.
No John, all the DVD's that were promised, that should have been out in the hands of many people who have the power to educate the public about what was said at the conference, and don't forget the continuing education credits they promised to send out. CAFC says a lot of things, but from what I've seen they don't follow up on it all. That leaves me to wonder, "What exactly is it that I should believe?"
They have 10 DVDs done, and are doing one at a time so they can release the whole conference as a set. They only have a couple more to do before they're done. Nobody donated anything toward the production of the DVDs, which is several thousand dollars. The only donations related to the conference were given more than 8 months ago, and were only applied to the immense cost of the conference itself. So they've been scraping by, trying to get these DVDs professionally produced by a professional with Final Cut Pro. That's the reason for the delay on the DVDs -- lack of money. So it's not about "sitting" on the information. Rather, it's about putting together DVDs of sufficient professional quality so that state and local court administrators, and family court professionals, around the country can have training materials that will produce a significant impact in how accused men and violent women are treated.
abolishing the duluth model(hate wheel)? WOW!!!
