DOMESTIC VIOLENCE EVALUATION
The Domestic Violence Evaluation is a screening tool established by the state of Florida designed to identify the treatment needs and sources of risk for continued violence against intimate partners of individuals entering Batterer Intervention Programs. It is composed of a structured interview examining the documented domestic violence incident, social, criminal, medical, employment, and family history of the individual, as well as a mental status examination. Based on the results from this evaluation individuals are recommended to one of three levels of treatment available in the community.
