Safety Planning for Domestic Violence Victims with Disabilities

This protocol builds on existing knowledge of advocates, without reviewing basic safety-planning strategies. The goal of this protocol and recommended policies is to support domestic violence agencies to increase their safety-planning services to people with disabilities and advance self-determination for people with disabilities by offering safety planning that is aware of environmental and social barriers. The protocol gives specific information about responding in a crisis, responding when there is more time to plan and prepare, specific considerations for a variety of disabilities, and a sample of safety-planning questions.
