Skills for Successful Collaborations by Day Piercy, is a skill-building curriculum in negotiation, collaborative mindset, strategic thinking, and meeting facilitation. It is the third of three interrelated training curricula developed for the staff of grassroots domestic violence organizations by the Building Comprehensive Solutions to Domestic Violence (BCSDV) initiative.
BCSDV started a national training initiative in an effort to enable domestic violence organizations to play a broader collaborative role in the community. The three interrelated training curricula were developed to build on each other, although each can stand alone as a teaching unit. Each curriculum contains an introductory discussion of the materal, a suggested schedule, material to be copied as transparencies for overhead projectors, handouts to be duplicated for participants, and substantive discussion of each section for the trainer. Building Comprehensive Solutions to Domestic Violence (BCSDV) is an initiative of the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRC)
