September 27, 2019
 
20 Facts for Domestic Violence Awareness Month - October 2019June 22, 2019, marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of Effective Intervention in Domestic Violence & Child Maltreatment Cases: Guidelines for Policy and Practice aka the Greenbook. For more than 20 years, it has been the policy of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) to encourage child protection services, domestic violence agencies, juvenile courts, and community-based services to design interventions for families with co-occurring domestic violence and child maltreatment to achieve three outcomes: to create safety, enhance well-being, and provide stability for children and families.
 
For our 2019 Domestic Violence Awareness Month Fact Sheet, the Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody (a project of the NCJFCJ) seeks to honor survivors and their children who are experiencing co-occurring domestic violence and child maltreatment while attempting to navigate child custody and child welfare systems.
