Managing Outcomes for Victims of Domestic Violence
Service provision to victims of domestic violence presents unique challenges if an agency or staff member is to effectively respect, inform, connect and inspire program participants. Trauma-informed care has significant implications for organizational processes, and demands that direct service staff align the work they do with overall organization strategy to avoid re-traumatization while still driving towards improved outcomes.
Dennis Newlin, Clinical Director of STAND! For Families Free of Violence, has helped Social Solutions develop a best-practice model that providers can use to apply intentionality, demanded by trauma-informed care, to their work.
Along with other research-based, best practice models, these tools allow providers to collect the information necessary to evaluate program effectiveness and quickly report progress to funders. A combined discussion and software demonstration will show how, in practice, technology can reflect and support program goals and the daily frontline work in pursuit of those goals.
