About Safe & Together™ Model CORE Training
It’s not enough to talk about keeping children safe from domestic violence. It requires action through transformative practice. It requires a “whole of family” approach.” It requires an evidence-based approach being used by thousands of practitioners and organizations around the globe.
Join us for a four-day training event in your region that teaches transformative practice. Through experiential exercises, discussion, videos, and lectures, you will learn the following:
- The fundamental elements of the Safe & Together Model, like a perpetrator pattern-based approach and the Multiple Pathways to Harm assessment framework
- Core practice skills for working with the entire family, including assessment, interviewing, documentation and case planning.
- How to use our Perpetrator Pattern Mapping Tool to improve outcomes for families
- How the Safe & Together Model helps guide practice when cases involving domestic violence intersect with mental health and substance use
- How the Model’s Six Steps of Partnering with Survivors helps identify the protective capacities of survivors, especially those from marginalized communities
- How the Model helps intervene with perpetrators as parents Planning
Other training highlights

CORE Training ParticipantsSurvey data
“I am already seeing changes in my practice, including an open-mindedness to reasons non-offending parents go back to relationships (acknowledging that sometimes it is not a choice). I have also been having more partnering conversations with non-offending parents and more accountable conversations with perpetrators.”
“The training provided practical resources and learning that I am able to implement immediately into my practice.”
“Very comprehensive training and provided an opportunity for reflection. I also felt that the documentation section was very useful and will influence my day-to-day practice going forward.”
“The detail of Safe and Together informed practice is vital to how we all work in this area. The knowledge gained has been very important to my own practice and that of my team. How we partner with the non-offending parent and challenge our own assumptions is core to how we address domestic violence and protect the non-offending parent and child(ren).”
“I loved the perpetrator behavioral pattern mapping and all the other practical tools. The material is very relevant and easy to use.” – Canada
“I’ve been using the training in every way possible! I started the day after the training while preparing for a case planning meeting. I had a staff change the harm statement from ‘the mother has been involved in previous DV relationships’ to ‘the mother has been a victim of previous DV relationships.’” – US
“The training provided practical exercises and an opportunity to apply learned skills” – US
“The training brought a new awareness and education regarding working with cases where the primary concern is DV and how to work with the children, perpetrator and non-offending parent.” – US
