Child Protective Services: Advocating for safety for battered mothers and their children together

Event Date
Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 02:00PM

While definitions and understandings of safety, protective strategies, and impact on children of living with a batterer can sometimes lead to adversarial relationships between battered women's advocates and child protection workers, victims of abuse need advocates to be able to work with and within child protection to ensure that a system designed to focus on children doesn't inadvertently make things worse for a woman and her children. 

This webinar will introduce strategies for child protection workers and domestic violence advocates to come together to:

  • explore our different perspectives, non-defensively,
  • better understand the complexities of the child protection system,
  • build attention to safety that focuses on battered mothers and their children together into policies and case processing, and
  • explore lessons learned from a community that utilized a practice assessment process to strengthen outcomes for battered mothers and their children.
