Trauma-Informed Child Welfare Series: Part I & Part II

Date: 
Thursday, January 10, 2013
Time: 
2:30 pm (EST)
Location: 
Online
Sponsoring Agency: 
The National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement (NCROI)
Description: 

The National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement (NCROI), a service of the Children's Bureau, has opened registration for Part II: Expanding Trauma-Informed Services in Child Welfare Systems which will be presented on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 2:30 pm (EST). Cosponsored by the National Resource Center for Legal and Judicial Issues, the webinar will highlight resources and strategies that child welfare agencies, providers, and courts can use to expand the availability of trauma-informed services across child-serving systems. Presenters will describe resources available from the NCTSN, and local leaders from the child welfare, mental health, and court systems will discuss the steps they have taken to expand trauma-informed services both within their systems and in collaboration with other systems.

Part II follows up November's Part I: Building Systems to Support Trauma-Informed Practice, now available for viewing on the NCROI website, in which presenters from San Diego County, CA and Oklahoma describe a trauma-informed child welfare system, emphasize how the pieces of such a system can fit together to improve outcomes, highlight two sites that participated in a Breakthrough Series Collaborative 2010 to 2012 on using trauma-informed child welfare practice to improve placement stability, and share their experience with building systems to support trauma-informed practice.

Fatherhood and Domestic Violence

Date: 
Monday, January 14, 2013
Time: 
3:00pm-4:30pm Eastern Time
Location: 
Online
Sponsoring Agency: 
Batterer Intervention Services Coalition
Description: 

Presenters: David Mandel, MA, with David Mandel & Associates and
Gabrielle Davis, J. D. attorney with the Battered Women's Justice Project.
 
Hosted by: Barbara Hart, J.D. and Kari Sonmore
 
Description: Domestic violence is often defined as the perpetration of coercive control by one adult against another in an intimate relationship. In reality, domestic violence perpetrators frequently engage in a web of behaviors that also directly and indirectly involve their children. An effective response to domestic violence and child maltreatment begins with a holistic understanding of the tactics  batterers use to impact the entire family. This means using a framework that goes beyond witnessing to include direct child abuse, using the child as weapon against the other parent, undermining a partner's parenting and the myriad pathways by which perpetrators impact housing stability, mental health, school performance and other basic needs. This broader, more holistic understanding of perpetrator's behavior is essential if we are going to hold batterers responsible as fathers, and set high expectations for behavior change. It also is the key to breaking the gender double standard that often blames mothers for the harm to children created by the perpetrator's behavior, and breaking domestic violence survivors' entrapment in the child welfare system. This webinar will explore Safe and Together model (TM) and other perspectives on creating a more holistic response to the harm domestic violence perpetrators cause families.
