The Safe & Together Institute is offering a 25% discount on their e-learning courses for orders placed before 31 October 2018. 

The work of the US-based Safe & Together Institute focuses on the intersection of child welfare, child maltreatment and domestic violence.

In their Fifth Report, the Family Violence Death Review Committee (FVDRC) highlighted the Safe & Together model as promising practice, noting that "The Safe and Together model supports a shift from a ‘failure to protect’ approach to a perpetrator pattern, child-centred and survivor strengths-based approach" (Family Violence Death Review Committee: fifth report: January 2014 to December 2015, page 102).

The e-learning courses currently available include:

Safe & Together: An Introduction to the Model

The Model provides a framework for partnering with domestic violence survivors and intervening with domestic violence perpetrators in order to enhance the safety and wellbeing of children. The course covers the principles and components of the model, the perpetrator-pattern based approach, partnering with the survivor, how perpetrator behaviour impacts the child and applying the model to your work.
