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
