Domestic Violence and Child Abuse

Domestic violence encompasses a wide range of activities including patterns of behavior resulting in emotional/psychological abuse, economic control, and/or interference with personal liberty, and the use, attempted use or threatened use of force against a person of the opposite sex.

Child abuse and/or neglect includes physical injury, sexual maltreatment, emotional maltreatment deprivation of necessities, withholding of medically indicated treatment or combinations of these inflicted on a child by an individual responsible for the child's welfare.

The Army Family Advocacy Program has a requirement, based on AR 608-18, to provide educational information, resources, and services to assist all individuals that may be victims of violence, an offender in an abusive relationship, or a person impacted by violence.

Programs and services include, but are not limited to: advocacy services, safety planning, domestic violence awareness programs, and child abuse prevention programs. The program also has a requirement to provide education to child care providers on the prevention of and identification of child abuse. Special programs are developed for those individuals by law enforcement.
