Safe and Together: An introduction to the Model (AVAILABLE MARCH 15, 2017)
The Safe and Together™ Model is an internationally recognized suite of tools and interventions designed to help child welfare and their partners become domestic violence-informed. Continuously refined, based on years of experience implementing the Model across the United States and other countries, the Model helps improve competencies and cross-system collaboration related to the intersection of domestic violence and child maltreatment.
This child-centered Model derives its name from the concept that children are best served when we can work toward keeping them safe and together with the non-offending parent (the adult domestic violence survivor). The Model provides a framework for partnering with domestic violence survivors and intervening with domestic violence perpetrators to enhance the safety and wellbeing of children.
In this training, you’ll learn
- the principles and components of the Safe and Together Model
- what a perpetrator-pattern based approach is
- the importance of partnering with the survivor
- how a perpetrator’s behavior impacts the child
- how to apply the Model to your work
