Building Bridges: Domestic Violence/Intimate Partner Violence Specialists Making a Difference in Child Welfare
This webinar is hosted by Children’s Bureau
In this 90-minute webinar, DV/IPV Specialists in Illinois, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania will share their experiences and actionable insights from working at the intersection of domestic violence and child welfare.
Child welfare professionals in many states benefit from having regular access to expert consultation from domestic violence specialists who can help them assess a situation, create a family plan, facilitate access to services and resources, conduct safety planning and/or transfer learning through training and coaching. The partnership works best when child welfare and DV professionals invest in developing relationships in which different perspectives can be discussed and debated openly, and where decisions are informed by the lived experience and wisdom of survivors themselves.
