Is Your Client Safe? Behind the scenes

Earlier this year, we released a new brochure, Is Your Client Safe? A Lawyer’s Guide to Relationship Violence. How did we decide on this topic and what information to include? In this 3.3-minute video, Alex, our publications development coordinator, gives you a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into planning and producing one of our publications.

Is Your Client Safe? was created in association with the Ending Violence Association of BC with funding from the Victim Services and Crime Prevention Division of the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General (now the Ministry of Justice).

Hot off the press: Surviving Relationship Violence and Abuse now available in French

Surviving Relationship Violence and Abuse is now available online only in French.

This booklet outlines what abuse is from a legal perspective and what a woman’s legal rights are if she is in an abusive relationship. It also explains what women can do to protect themselves and their children, and who can help. This French version includes a chapter about violence against Aboriginal women in relationships and lists resources available to them. The booklet is also available in simplified and traditional Chinese, English, Punjabi, and Spanish.
