Registration is open for the 7th Safe & Together™ Model North America Conference: Domestic Violence & Children — November 13-15, 2019



Our longest-running conference, the North America event brings experts from multiple fields to present various aspects of domestic violence research, impact and intersections. The conference invites national and international research and demonstrations of the Safe & Together™ Model in practice, working to change communities. Each conference includes pre-event intensives, covering multiple levels of education.

The implementation of the Safe & Together Model in child welfare family serving systems has grown exponentially in the last two years throughout North America, the United Kingdom and Australia. This conference is a chance to learn what’s new, how it’s working and who has been making it work. From new workers to seasoned professionals with years of experience, the goal of the Safe & Together Conference is to transform thinking to achieve real change for children and families. In fact, as one 2018 attendee said, “All my years in social work and this conference was so eye-opening.”

To start, the conferene Keynote Speaker, survivor, author of Remembered Forever and activitst Luke Hart, gets to the heart of the matter as he speaks about his own experience and how the media and society presented his family after his father murdered his sister and mother.

Join us as we focus on how advocates, subject matter experts and domestic violence consultants have transformed child welfare systems, sparked drastic changes in case practice and created sustainable staff training.

Keynote Speaker

Luke Hart
Luke HartSurvivor, Author, Advocate
On 19 July 2016, Claire and Charlotte Hart were murdered in broad daylight, by the family’s father using a sawn-off shotgun. He then committed suicide. Luke and Ryan Hart, the two surviving sons, now openly share their story to raise awareness of coercive and controlling behaviour. So far, they have trained police officers, police community support officers, NHS personnel and legal professionals in the Crown Prosecution Service. They are White Ribbon Ambassadors and Refuge Champions speaking out against male violence towards women and children. They have released their book Operation Lighthouse, telling their story and challenging myths and stereotypes surrounding domestic abuse and coercive control.

Luke’s keynote, “Living under coercive control” sheds light on what it’s like to live under coercive control, and the gendered nature of coercive control and it’s larger structural enablers. In particular, Luke gives insight into the media reporting he and his brother witnessed after the murders of their mother and Charlotte and how this echoed their father’s coercive narratives.
