Supervisors & Managers


4-Day CORE Training

Supervisor Training Bundle

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.

About CORE Training Prerequisites

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.

  • 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.
