Envisioning Solutions for Collaborative Practice 2017

                     jffny2017 3


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.


The program will allow each community to engage not only with each other, but with individual faculty members throughout the two days. Faculty members are national experts that represent varying disciplines such as supervised visitation and exchange providers, domestic violence and sexual assault advocates, attorneys, and judges. The faculty team will include:


Hon. Shaun Floerke

Kathryn Ford

 Jennifer Rose

 Portland, Oregon


 Sujata Warrier
