Facilitated Cohort Learning Sessions To Support Domestic Violence Practice
These sessions provide participants of the Domestic Violence in Child Welfare in-service training an opportunity to expand their knowledge and work within live cases. Topics of the sessions are identified by the cohort members and learning activities are organized and facilitated by Alliance staff. These sessions will rely on the policy and best practices in "The Social Worker’s Practice Guide to Domestic Violence" for child welfare work with families experiencing domestic violence.
These learning sessions will continue to build across the four core areas from the Domestic Violence in-service: universal and periodic screening for domestic violence; conducting a specialized DV assessment; engagement and accountability with DV perpetrators; and case planning in families experiencing DV
