Helping children and families impacted by a domestic violence perpetrator’s behaviors takes skill and confidence. The Safe & Together Institute’s CORE Training offers both. By focusing on four key skills: assessment, interviewing, documentation and case planning, our experiential training provides the foundation for domestic violence-informed practice.
During 22 hours of lecture, group exercises, discussion and video, the CORE Training provides participants with an improved understanding of:
- Assessing perpetrators’ behavior patterns and their impact on child and family function.
- Partnering with adult survivors of domestic violence to create safety and well-being, for both themselves and their children.
- Interventions for perpetrators, working toward behavioral changes.
Core Practice Training is for those in child welfare; domestic violence advocates; mental health, substance abuse and other community service providers; batterer intervention or men’s behavior change staff; court and legal personnel; law enforcement; health and home visitors and others who work with families impacted by domestic violence. It is a prerequisite to becoming a Certified Trainer, a Safe & Together Model Coach, and other advanced trainings.
