This three part video series was posted by the Institute for Administrative Justice geared toward those who work in the field of domestic violence and victims with disabilities to educate them about the challenges they face handling these cases. The videos are fairly lengthy but there is a lot of information in there that can be useful for professionals working with these victims. (State of California)
