About CORE Training

CORE Training explores the importance of:

  • Identifying the impact of domestic violence on children and family functioning.
  • Fact-based assessment of the perpetrators’ behavior patterns.
  • Partnering with adult survivors of domestic violence.
  • Intervening with perpetrators.
  • How domestic violence intersects with other issues like substance abuse and mental health.

Participants of the CORE Training will:

  • Learn to use practice tools, such as Mapping Perpetrators’ Patterns and Multiple Pathways to Harm that can be implemented right away to improve assessment of risk, impact on children, survivor protective efforts and essential case decisions.
  • Practice interviewing perpetrators, survivors and children through modeling, role play and videos.
  • Improve domestic violence-informed documentation through individual and group exercises.
  • Discuss current or past cases and explore how the Safe & Together Model could be implemented.

  • Participants will complete a pre- and post-test to reflect learning, as well as a training evaluation.
  • Participants who attend all four days and take the post-test will receive a certificate of completion, which indicates they participated in 22 training hours.
  • Participants who complete all four days and score an 80% or higher on the CORE Training post-test will meet one of the prerequisites to become a Safe & Together Model Certified Trainer.
