About Safe & Together™ Model CORE Training


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email that contains a link to a PRETEST. This pretest is meant to begin the learning process and your score will NOT affect your participation or certificate in any way. It is a multiple-choice questionnaire will only take up to 10 minutes. We ask that you complete it to the best of your ability BEFORE arriving to your first training day. The questions may seem specific, but please read each question carefully and select the answers that seem best or in a way that best matches your own practice.

Training Summary

Safe & Together Institute’s CORE Training is designed to provide a skills-oriented foundation for domestic violence-informed practice. Each day of training provides experiential classroom training focused on the following foundational practice areas:

  • Day 1 Assessment
  • Day 2 Interviewing
  • Day 3 Documentation
  • Day 4 Case Planning

CORE Training explores the importance of:

  • Identifying the impact of domestic violence 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 other issues 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.
  • Discuss their own current or past cases and explore how the Safe & Together Model could be implemented.

Also included in CORE Training:

  • Plans will be developed by participants to support the implementation of the Model to improve their day-to-day practice and 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.
  • Participants who attend all four days and take the posttest will receive a certificate of completion, which indicates they participated in 22 training hours.
  • Participants who complete all four days and score an 80% or higher on the CORE Training posttest will meet one of the prerequisites to become a Safe & Together Model Certified Trainer.

Group Size

  • This training has a maximum of 40 participants.
