MOSAIC Online Assessment (https://www.mosaicmethod.com/) To combat domestic violence, Gavin de Becker has developed a potentially lifesaving tool called MOSAIC. This online assessment is free and protects the user’s identity. Anyone—the victim or concerned loved ones—can log onto the website and answer 46 questions to determine how much of a threat an abuser poses to an individual or family. The technology is based on similar programs used to protect congressmen and Supreme Court justices. “It takes the factors of a situation and breaks them down and then sees all these pieces of the puzzle and puts it back together in a way that, in a domestic violence situation, a woman can see the picture for the first time.”
