Expanding Our Silos: Building Effective Collaboration between Child Welfare Professionals and Domestic Violence Advocates

AUDIENCE: Professionals working in the child welfare system or the domestic violence advocacy field are encouraged to attend.

Sponsored by:
KCSDV

Families experiencing domestic violence often have to navigate through many different systems including the child welfare system, the legal system and the advocacy system.   For a number of different reasons, communication between these different systems is inconsistent, often strained, or entirely non-existent.  By making concerted efforts to build collaboration across systems, safety and services for survivors are enhanced and offender accountability is increased.  Building an effective partnership between child welfare professionals and domestic violence advocates enhances the communication among collaborative partners.  Maintaining these partnerships can break down the barriers that survivors encounter.   By attending this training participants will learn the key components to building an effective collaboration; gain knowledge of the different systems domestic violence survivors interact with; understand the different confidentiality and mandatory reporting requirements of child welfare professionals versus domestic violence advocates; and be familiar with the different services provided by domestic violence advocates.
