This webinar is hosted by Battered Women's Justice Project and is open to the public.
This webinar will explain the difference between adolescent domestic battery and intimate partner violence and the need for an alternative system and alternative treatment for this issue. Adolescent Domestic Battery (ADB) is a teenager who commits an act of violence against a parent, sibling, or other family member living at home. These family-internal attacks mean that in many countries many young people are arrested for domestic violence as defined by DV. According to data from the FBI's National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS): – Half (51%) of the ADBs have one parent and one quarter (24%) a sibling. – Against one parent, the parent was most likely the mother for both juvenile male (68%) and female offenders (81%). 48% of ADBs were arrested, compared with 31% of juvenile offenders who attacked acquaintances and 32% who attacked strangers. The speakers will provide alternative "system responses" and "treatment responses" from projects in Illinois and Florida.
