From Facebook to Spyware: Domestic Violence in the Digital Age

From Facebook to Spyware: Domestic Violence in the Digital Age

Do the survivors you work with know how easy it is for abusive partners to track their every move, to monitor everything they do on a computer, in their cars, or on their phones? Corbin Streett, MSW and Digital Technology Specialist with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, presents how to ensure that survivors are able to stay technologically connected, while helping minimize the related safety risks they face when in an abusive relationship. 

This workshop was planned in conjunction with the The Women's Resource Center. The Women's Resource Center and the Barbara J. Hart Center are committed to using their resources in partnership with others to effect positive change for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Our hope is that this program will increase the resources available to victims by enhancing the knowledge of attending providers.
