While focused on child welfare, this course is for anyone who works with children and families.

Becoming a Certified Safe and Together Trainer

The Core Practice Training stands on its own as the foundation for domestic violence-informed practice. It is also a required step for becoming a Safe and Together Model trainer.   The Safe and Together Institute is planning a Certification Training for November 2017 in Australia.
