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.
