Domestic Violence Intermediate

Description: This 3 hour session will build on the Fundamental course material by exploring how to screen for domestic violence and effectively engage both adult survivors of abuse and their perpetrators while working towards child safety and well being. Learners will be given tools to help them partner with survivors and engage perpetrators in a change effort, as well as receive introduction to a variety of strategies for planning for child safety and evaluating effective change. Participants will also explore how they can explain the services they provide to survivors of domestic violence and engage in appropriate referral to local domestic violence service agencies.
