Child Protective Services: Planning & Conducting a Practice Assessment of Community Response to Domestic Violence
A 2-part webinar series to introduce new practice assessment tools and highlight the lessons learned from a community who tested the process to identify changes in local practice to enhance their response to the co-occurrence of child maltreatment and battering. Part 1 webinar recording
Part Two: Implications for Local Response: Lessons Learned from the Wright County Experience
December 1, 2015
Facilitator: Olga Trujillo, Praxis Senior Program & Training Specialist
Speakers: Rose Thelen, Praxis TA Partner and representatives of the Wright County Child Protective Services Assessment Team
To test the draft guide and tools covered in Part 1 of this series, Praxis worked with Rivers of Hope, a local community-based advocacy program and Wright County Health and Human Services, Child Protection (WCCHS-CP) in Buffalo, MN. Starting with a discussion series for relationship-building and establishing a common language for understanding the dynamics of battering in relationship to child protective services, the assessment team mapped their current response, conducted policy review, and engaged in-depth case file analysis. This webinar will explore their process and experience with the Practice Assessment, including an overview of key recommendations for enhancements for local practice and state guidance for all agencies in Minnesota.
WEBINAR SERIES ON THE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE BEST PRACTICE ASSESSMENT GUIDES
After over 30+ years of organizing, assessing, monitoring, and researching 911 through prosecution response to cases involving battering, we know a lot about what works and what does not work to help keep victims safe and to hold offenders accountable. The tools outlined in the Domestic Violence Best Practice Assessment Guides distill this accumulated knowledge into specific guidelines for practice for 911 responses through prosecution charging decisions. Join us for one or all parts in this series.
