There are many key research findings that people who work with sexual abuse victims may be unaware of due to busyness and a lack of reading about offenders. Most will know a few of these facts, but for example the 60% decline in sexual abuse over the past 20 years is fascinating as are the very low recidivism rates after treatment and the statistical effect size of treatment, relationships between offenders and victims, pornography research, risk factors for reoffense, trauma research and some of the actual stories of offenders understandings what they did and why they did it. In this talk disguised clinical stories of offenders will be shared from Dr. Burton book in progress, as well as research on the areas above resulting in a renewed and useful tool kit for anyone working with sexual assault survivors.

Domestic violence cases are often extremely challenging and concerning for child welfare systems and other professionals interested in the safety and well being of children. As child welfare systems seek to become more domestic violence informed, the Safe and Together model offers a field tested, innovative, comprehensive, promising practice child centered approach to domestic violence cases that involve children. Based on our work in more than 11 states and various countries, this introduction will provide an overview of the model assumptions, principles, critical components and key practice skills. Using successful case examples from practitioner, agency and community implementation, the trainers will discuss how the model impacts child welfare policy and practice, and outcomes for families including emerging data.
Participants attending this web training will:
- Gain an understanding of the model’s principles and critical components
- Hear about other states who have implemented the model
- Learn to conduct a thorough assessment through the lens of the model
- Explore how the model can enhance safety plans and case plans
