The Safe and Together model is being implemented in a number of states and jurisdictions (Connecticut, Ohio, Colorado, Florida, Kansas City, MO) to improve case practice and cross system collaboration in child welfare cases involving domestic violence. Challenging the double standards that often punish battered mothers and provide advantages to fathers who batterer, the model emphasizes the importance of a clear assessment of the behaviors batterers engage in to harm children and the day to day efforts battered mothers use to promote the safety and well being of their children. In this webinar David Mandel and Bridget Reilly provide an overview of the Safe and Together model and its implications for custody and visitation cases.
