While substance use disorder does not cause family violence, there is a statistical correlation between the two issues. Studies of family violence frequently indicate high rates of alcohol and other drug use by perpetrators during abuse. The association between alcohol use and domestic violence has been well established by past research, and there is growing evidence that drug use is associated with domestic violence. The clearest evidence is that alcohol is a risk factor for family violence offending. This training will review the most recent research on the coexistence of substance use, IPV and substance use coercion.

Facilitating Female Family Violence Intervention Groups
Training is virtual
Training Provided by: High Impact Training & Counseling, Inc.
Research is indicating that there is a growing number of females being arrested for family violence and being mandated into family violence intervention programs. There is a growing awareness that there are significant differences between male and female batterers and that successful treatment of female batterers needs to be different than the treatment of males. Many traditional explanations hold that violence and abuse stem from the patriarchal organization of our society. In reviewing the differences between female and male batterers, research indicates that women more often attribute their behavior to self-protection than do men.
In exploring this topic, it is imperative that we not minimize or deny the extensive oppression and violence towards women. However, research has begun to identify a growing trend of victimization by women in their relationships that nearly equal that perpetrated by men in years past. Whether violence is initiated by women, men or as often happen, by both batterers must be held accountable for their intentional abuse of their partners.

Public Comment Information
The public comment period is an essential part of our Georgia Commission on Family Violence quarterly meetings. This is an opportunity for members of the public to inform Commission members about their views and share concerns. Below are the guidelines regarding public comment at Commission meetings of the GCFV.
The public may not PARTICIPATE in decision-making and discussion periods during the meeting. This includes commentary in the chat feature of video-conferencing meetings.
The public comment period is the time for members of the public to express their views in order to inform the Commission. The Commission will not engage in open dialogue with the public during this time. The Commission shall not discuss or take action relative to any public comment during this meeting.
All public comments are taken under advisement by the Commission. However, the Chair may provide brief, factual information in response to a remark, at his/her discretion. There will be no further response permitted following a remark by the chair. If further response is required, please direct it to the Commission, in writing, at [email protected].
Speakers should address remarks to the Commission as a whole and not to any individual member or staff, unless in response to a direct question from a member or unless invited to speak by a member for a designated purpose.
All speakers are asked to state their full name after being recognized by the Chair and before providing remarks.
Speakers must limit remarks to items discussed on the agenda. Please direct unrelated questions or concerns to the Commission, in writing, at [email protected].
Each speaker shall limit comments to two (2) minutes and shall promptly conclude all comments when his or her time has expired. (The Commission will make efforts during meetings to provide a visible and/or audible public timer, so the speaker knows how much time is available. However, in the absence of such timer, the Chair or his/her designee will indicate when the time has expired.)
Each person addressing the Commission shall do so in a respectful, orderly manner and shall not use derogatory language or engage in conduct that materially disrupts, is an ongoing distraction or otherwise impedes the orderly and efficient conduct of the meeting. Three warnings to cease from disruptive behavior will be given before any action will be taken.
