Domestic violence-informed child welfare practice requires competencies in assessment, interviewing, documentation and case planning. Safe & Together Institute’s CORE Training offers four days of experiential classroom training covering each of these foundational skills.
- Case Planning
CORE Training explores the importance of:
- Identifying the impact of domestic abuse on children and family functioning.
- Fact-based assessment of the perpetrators’ behavior patterns.
- Partnering with adult survivors of domestic violence.
- Intervening with perpetrators.
- How domestic violence intersects with complicating factors like substance abuse and mental health.
Participants of the CORE Training will:
- Learn to use practice tools, such as Mapping Perpetrators’ Patterns and Multiple Pathways to Harm that can be implemented right away to improve assessment of risk, impact on children, survivor protective efforts and essential case decisions.
- Practice interviewing perpetrators, survivors and children through modeling, role play and videos.
- Improve their domestic violence-informed documentation through individual and group exercises.
- Be discussing their own current or past cases and explore how the Safe & Together Model could be implemented.
Also included in CORE Training:
- Participants will develop their own Action Plans to implement the Model into their day-to-day practice as well as begin to influence their communities and family service systems to become more domestic violence-informed.
- Participants will complete a pre- and posttest to reflect learning, as well as a training evaluation.
- A prerequisite to becoming a Safe & Together Model Certified Trainer and/or Coach includes an 80% or higher score on the CORE Training posttest.
