About Safe & Together™ Model CORE Training

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.

  • Day 1 is focused on Assessment
  • Day 2 is focused on Interviewing
  • Day 3 is focused on Documentation
  • Day 4 is focused on 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’ behaviour patterns
  • Partnering with adult survivors of domestic abuse
  • Intervening with perpetrators
  • How domestic abuse 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’ PatternsMultiple Pathways to Harm and Pivoting 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. Participants who attend all four days and take the posttest will receive a certificate of completion, which indicates they participated in 22 training hours.
  • A prerequisite to becoming a Safe & Together Model Certified Trainer and/or Coach includes an 80% or higher on the CORE Training posttest.
