Additional Information:
For the family experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV), the engagement of multiple, complex, and often uncoordinated systems can be overwhelming. This dialogue among national experts on domestic violence, child welfare, mental health and trauma, and fatherhood focuses on the intersection between domestic violence and child maltreatment. Participants will review and respond to a real-life case example. Panelists will subsequently describe innovative policies and programs at the nexus of child welfare and domestic violence, emphasizing practices that support safety, minimize risk, and promote resilience. This interactive Webcast will also include a question and answer period, as well as an opportunity for participants to share promising practices.

- Deepen understanding of the complex relationship between families impacted by IPV and the systems they turn to for help
- Connect promising and evidence-based practices to the risk, safety, and protective factors addressed by the intervention
- Exchange information on effective programs to aid in assessing current practice and implementing effective policies and programs
- Identify issues and generate ideas for topics that require further exploration
