WEBINAR 3: How Advocates’ and Women Sector Workers Can Use the Safe & Together Model to Strengthen their Work with Survivors
When it comes to children, systems have often blamed survivors for the effects of perpetrators’ behaviors. Survivors parenting strengths are often ignored and perpetrator’s parenting choices are invisible. We will identify how to keep kids safe without blaming domestic violence survivors, by validating her strengths and increasing interventions with perpetrators as parents. In this webinar, we explore how the Model can be applied in survivor services and the advocacy sector and the implications for survivors involved with child protection and/or family courts
21 September 9am Perth Australia / 11am Melbourne (20 September 9pm EST)
WEBINAR 4: Applying a Perpetrator Pattern-Based Approach to Child Custody and Access Matters
Family courts are charged with balancing off child safety with meaningful relationships with both parents. What does this mean in the context of domestic violence? In many instances, the court is not clearly presented with the perpetrators’ patterns and the specifics of the harm it has caused, and emphasis on collaborative parenting works against the best interests of children in these cases. Drawing on work in family court settings in the United States and Australia, David Mandel, explores how the Model can help decision-making in custody and access cases.
