Cohort 1

Advocating for Child Welfare Involved Clients
New Mexico Cohort

Advocates play a crucial role in helping child welfare-involved clients identify their strengths, communicate them to child welfare staff and create plans that are perpetrator pattern-based.

Advocates can use elements of this same Model to improve their advocacy for their clients who are involved with child welfare and promote systems change.

Safe & Together Institute
Practice Training Bundles

These sector-specific, skills-based training packages include a curated combination of our high quality e-courses and interactive virtual sessions facilitated live by expert staff & faculty

Why this Bundle?

This training bundle introduces domestic violence advocates to the basics of the Safe & Together Model and connects its unique concepts and practice tools to advocating for child welfare-involved clients.
In this package, we combine two of our most popular e-courses with three 90 minute instructor-led practice sessions to enhance the skills of advocates and women sector workers in advocating for their clients’ parenting strengths and pivoting the system’s attention back to the perpetrator as parent.

As a result of this training, you will:
  • Learn how to use the language of the perpetrator pattern-based approach to shift child welfare attention back to the perpetrator as the source of the danger to children
  • Extend your ability to identify and communicate adult survivors’ parenting strengths
  • Learn more about how the research supports the important role that survivors play in protecting children
