Transcript of "Csa File & Proposal Presentation"

  1. 1. The Human-Animal Bond Between Domestically Abused Women and Their Companion Animals <ul><li>Debbie McBride </li></ul><ul><li>California State University, San Marcos </li></ul><ul><li>Department of Sociology </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Alicia Gonzales </li></ul><ul><li>California Sociological Association </li></ul><ul><li>November 12, 2010 </li></ul>
  2. 2. What is my study exploring?: <ul><li>Do companion animals/pets affect domestically abused women’s decision making? </li></ul><ul><li>Do domestically abused women delay seeking services for fear their pets will be harmed/killed? </li></ul>
  3. 3. CHARACTERISTICS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
  4. 4. Domestic Violence Stats <ul><li>One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. </li></ul><ul><li>An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. </li></ul><ul><li>Females who are 20-24 years of age are at the greatest risk of nonfatal intimate partner violence </li></ul><ul><li>Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Human-Animal Bond <ul><li>Why it Matters: </li></ul><ul><li>71% of pet-owning women entering women’s shelters reported that their batterer had injured, maimed, killed or threatened family pets for revenge or to psychologically control victims; 32% reported their children had hurt or killed animals. </li></ul><ul><li>68% of battered women reported violence towards their animals. 87% of these incidents occurred in the presence of the women, and 75% in the presence of the children, to psychologically control and coerce them. </li></ul><ul><li>13% of intentional animal abuse cases involve domestic violence. </li></ul><ul><li>Between 25% and 40% of battered women are unable to escape abusive situations because they worry about what will happen to their pets or livestock should they leave. </li></ul>
  6. 6. What’s Being Done & needs to Continue <ul><li>In many communities, human services, animal services and law enforcement agencies are sharing resources and expertise to address violence. </li></ul><ul><li>Professionals are beginning to engage in cross-training and cross-reporting through inter-agency partnerships. </li></ul><ul><li>Humane societies are also teaming with domestic violence shelters to provide emergency shelter for pets of domestic violence victims. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, some states have strengthened their animal-cruelty legislation and taken other measures to address the human-animal bond. </li></ul>
