Alumni Updates

In September, Patty Hackett (MSW), Anna Marie's Alliance Child/Youth Services Coordinator, was part of a panel which presented at the National Center for Victims of Crime National Conference in New Orleans.  The presentation "Domestic Violence Court Partnership: Developing Systems to Meet Survivors' Needs" highlighted the creation, impact, and strategies of the Domestic Violence Court Partnership.  Patty focused attention on the importance of helping children voice their experiences through art and play.  Using pictures drawn by children and their own words helps mothers understand the trauma their children are experiencing and may ultimately influence their decisions regarding Orders for Protection.
