A Safety Organized Approach to Domestic Violence: Partnering with the Survivor
Domestic violence can have an impact on the physical and emotional safety of the children and the functioning of the entire family. This hands-on training will engage participants in critical thinking about their practice when there is a perpetrator pattern of coercive control and violence. It can be a challenge to hold the perpetrator accountable while keeping the children safe in the care of the survivor.
Participants will be introduced to safety-organized concepts to increase their proficiency in engaging domestic violence survivors using solution focused strategies. Trainers will share and model use of the SOP DV Timeline. It’s a tool created by Luck P Luckey to engage the survivor in wanting to partner with the agency and jointly make a balanced assessment of safety and danger. Participants will practice each step of the timeline process on a case scenario. Examples of solution focused questions designed to increase rigor in safety and case planning with the survivor and the perpetrator will be shared.
- Increase understanding of SOP core principles related to domestic violence to build better outcomes for families and the child welfare system
- Learn how to identify perpetrator patterns to inform Structured Decision Making (SDM) assessments
- Understand how to apply an intersecting lens when mental illness and substance abuse are intertwined with domestic violence
- Be introduced to the SOP DV Timeline tool used when interviewing for danger and safety
- Using all these practice tools together to create survivor and child centered safety and case plans
