To facilitate learning in this period of social distancing, the Ohio Intimate Partner Violence is offering an online series of the Safe & TogetherTM CORE training Days 1-2. The series features four 3-hour sessions. Participants will still enjoy a live training by an Ohio certified trainer and while some exercises may be adapted, training content will remain the same. Please note: participants will need to complete all four training sessions to receive a certificate.

The Safe & TogetherTM CORE training provides a comprehensive introduction to domestic violence using a perpetrator pattern-based, child-centered, and survivor strengths approach. The Model was originally developed for child welfare systems, so it goes beyond a primer on domestic violence to teach hands-on skills and tools rooted in child welfare practice. The Safe & Together Model also improves the ability of child welfare to work with complex cases, making the connections with domestic violence clearer and helping to ensure a more holistic approach to serving families.

Safe & Together Institute's CORE Training is designed to provide a skills-oriented foundation for domestic violence-informed practice. Each day of training provides experiential classroom training focused on the following foundational practice areas:
Day 1 Assessment
Day 2 Interviewing
Day 3 Documentation
Day 4 Case Planning

CORE Training explores the importance of:
• Identifying the impact of domestic violence on children and family functioning.
• Performing fact-based assessments of the perpetrators' behavior patterns.
• Partnering with adult survivors in keeping their children safe.
• Intervening with perpetrators to hold them accountable, while keeping workers safe.
• Recognizing how domestic violence intersects with other issues like substance abuse and mental health.
