We hope you will join us for the first time, or the sixth, as we continue to bring together professionals from around the globe who want to create domestic violence-informed systems. Our program will include new presenters and workshops that build on the following themes:
Pre-Conference: October 3, 2018
Conference: October 4-5, 2018
PLUS: Safe and Together CORE training: October 1-3, 2018
The Safe & Together Conference is designed for both professionals experienced with the model as well as those attending Safe & Together™ Model training for the first time. Most attendees include child welfare frontline workers, supervisors, managers/administrators; child welfare attorneys; domestic violence advocates, counselors, administrators; policy makers; researchers; judges; Guardians ad Litem, CASAs; home visitors; mental health and substance abuse professionals; fatherhood program staff; and/or batterer intervention providers. Participants should be interested in enhancing safety for children, developing responsible fatherhood practices, supporting survivors of domestic violence and intervening with perpetrators of domestic violence.
This year we held the First Annual Asia-Pacific Safe & Together Conference, in Melbourne, Australia with more than 250 attendees from various countries in the Asia-Pacific region. We are really excited to bring back what we learned in Texas and continue connecting partners from around the world who are creating Domestic Violence-Informed systems.
“Being able to connect to others across the country and the world and learn about how they are doing things in their area.”
“It opened my eyes to the role that the father plays in the family.”
“I enjoyed the examples of case planning with fathers who use violence. How to better write case notes to reflect responsibility on batterer and not victim.”
“Tools and Examples!”
