As a result of this workshop, grantee community participants will be better able to:

·        Design a collaborative project that recognizes domestic violence risks and promotes safety for at risk parents and children in a culturally thoughtful manner.

·        Define the respective roles of each of the collaborative partners and utilize the resources of each.

·        Evaluate the necessity, appropriateness, and impact of supervised visitation and exchange services for women, children, and men in domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, child abuse, and dating violence cases.

·        Take the opportunity as collaborative partners to become a catalyst for improving the ways the community supports women, children, and men in the aftermath of domestic violence.
