New Curriculum for the New Year!

Posted: 11.14.2017


The Ohio IPV Collaborative is excited to announce we will be introducing new curriculum in the New Year! Starting in late January 2018, participants in our Safe & Together™ Core trainings will enjoy a more comprehensive, practice-oriented approach that features an action planning component throughout the four days; meaning CPSA staff return to work with a concrete plan and more confidence in their newly learned skills. The revised trainings include new training videos, enhanced mapping tools, and opportunities for attendees to create real practice materials using their own cases.


  • Day 1 is focused on Introduction to the Safe & Together™ Model and Assessment.
  • Day 2 is focused on Interviewing Perpetrators, Adult Survivors, and Child Survivors.
  • Day 3 is focused on Documentation (both good and bad examples) and Mapping Perpetrators’ Patterns, and Survivors’ Strengths.
  • Day 4 is focused on Case Planning with Perpetrators, Adult Survivors, and Children and creating a personal Action Plan.


Continuously refined based on years of experience implementing the Model across the United States and other countries, Safe & Together™ is designed to help child welfare systems and their community partners become domestic violence-informed. 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.
