Intersections: When Domestic Violence Perpetration, Substance Abuse, and Mental Health Meet
Many families impacted by domestic violence perpetrators’ behaviors have multiple, complex, intersecting issues. In the past, we might have referred to these as co-occurring issues. But the language of co-occurrence often doesn’t provide us with a sense of how these issues interact. For example, listing the family’s issues is not as powerful as explaining how the domestic violence perpetrator interfered with his partner’s recovery. Listing that the family has experienced both domestic violence and child behavioral health issues is not as useful as describing how the perpetrator’s violence has produced anxiety and aggression in the children. Using an intersections framework, versus a co-occurrence framework, we increase perpetrator accountability, improve our ability to diagnosis and treat each member of the family, and improve our ability to help the adult and children survivors. This course will provide guidance on how to understand the connections, or intersections, and make them work for us in our practice.

Multiple Pathways to Harm: A Comprehensive Assessment Framework
This e-course provides an introduction to the Safe & Together Model’s Multiple Pathways to Harm assessment and critical thinking framework. The course provides tools to apply a comprehensive assessment lens to the impact of domestic violence perpetrator behaviors on child and family functioning. This approach sets high standards for men as parents, engagement standards for men of diverse backgrounds and teaches how to partner with adult survivors. This child-centered Model derives its name from the concept that children are best served when we can work toward keeping them safe and together with the non-offending parent (the adult domestic violence survivor). The Model provides a framework for partnering with domestic violence survivors and intervening with domestic violence perpetrators in order to enhance the safety and well-being of children.
