The goals of victim safety and well-being and offender accountability form the basis of the clinical provider’s work in responding to allegations of domestic abuse and child abuse.

What is Domestic Abuse?
Domestic abuse can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner. There are two types of reporting options for adult victims of domestic abuse, restricted and unrestricted. Both options make available to victims the full range of advocacy, medical and counseling services.
What is Child Abuse?
Child abuse is the physical or sexual abuse, emotional maltreatment or neglect of an unmarried person under 18 years old.
How can FAP help?
The choices in an abusive relationship are never easy. But, knowing that there are options for seeking help is the first step in ending abuse and having a safer and happier life. The Army is committed to addressing and ending domestic abuse and offers a variety of interventions and treatment services to meet the needs of individual families. Services offered by the Family Advocacy Program include:
- Individual and family counseling.
- Clinical case management.
