Safety Planning:

  • Is 1:1 or small group guidance to assist a client with evaluating his/her individual situation and then creating a plan to respond to the associated risks.
  • Is encouraged for any person (men, women, adolescents) who is feeling unsafe due to abuse, harassment, or stalking.
  • Is encouraged for any person seeking to modify or lift a current Criminal No Contact Order.
  • Utilizes a tool designed to incorporate standard safety protocol, patterns of previous behavior, and individualized options so as to effectively reduce risk of harm.
  • Educates people about the cycle of violence, preparing for the occurrence of violence, and implementing safety strategies during an incident as well as after leaving a relationship.
  • Addresses additional implications such as legal orders, technology, drugs/alcohol, children, and emotional health.

If you have been referred by the courts and have an upcoming court hearing to consider a change or termination of a Criminal No Contact Order, please contact WCA Victim Advocate at least one week prior to your appearance to ensure appointment availability.
