The Centre for Non-Adversarial Justice will host Judge Eugene Hyman, who will address the important topic of keeping the victims/survivors and their children safe in cases where there has been intimate partner violence.

Intimate partner violence presents many challenges to all state actors who intersect with perpetrators and their victims and those closely associated with them. In addition to families becoming involved in several divisions of the court simultaneously, there is also the possibility of co-occurring challenges of mental health and substance abuse. These potential co-occurring issues increase the difficulties of working with the population of offenders and victims.

Judge Eugene M Hyman (retired) served on the Superior Court of California of Santa Clara County for 20 years, presiding over cases in the criminal, family, probate, civil, and delinquency divisions, and establishing the first juvenile domestic violence court in the United States.
