Safe and Together 3 Day Supervisors Training
Domestic violence is one of the most challenging case issues facing child welfare and other family service agencies. Handling it well requires skills, confidence and knowledge. Supervising workers in a domestic violence-related practice is one way to make sure employees have the support and guidance they need when working with adult and child survivors, intervening with perpetrators, and managing safety for themselves and the family.
In this updated, in-person training, supervisors and managers learn key skills to help their workers apply a perpetrator pattern-based approach to casework. The training is organized into three critical supervisory skills:
- Assessing and supporting the quality of their workers’ practice
- Decision making and worker guidance
- Managing worker safety
Supervisors will learn and practice hands-on skills and techniques that will make a difference in their own practice.
This 3-day training course begins with a day spent completing the Safe & Together™ Model CORE Training, an essential component in supervising workers who are using the Model in their practice. It also includes two hours of online pre-learning using the Safe & Together: An Introduction to the Model e-course. We recommend that supervisors not only have a deep familiarity with the Model, but also use it in day-to-day practice within the agency, department or unit.
