This webinar is hosted by the Battered Women's Justice Project and is open to the public. 


The SAFeR approach to child custody cases involving domestic violence helps practitioners screen for and understand the full nature, context and effects of abuse so that they can respond with safe and workable parenting arrangements. SAFeR can be used by attorneys, advocates, judicial officers, custody evaluators, guardians ad litem and survivors and is implemented through the use of worksheets and practice guides.  This webinar will introduce SAFeR and expose participants to the wide range of training and technical assistance available to programs, practitioner groups and communities wanting to implement SAFeR. 


Loretta Frederick, Senior Legal and Policy Advisor, Battered Women’s Justice Project and Nancy Ver Steegh, Professor of Law, Mitchell Hamline School of Law.
