Quality Improvement Center on Domestic Violence in Child Welfare (QIC-DVCW)

Futures Without Violence has launched a new project, the Quality Improvement Center on Domestic Violence in Child Welfare (QIC-DVCW). The aim of the center is to “test an approach to improve how child welfare agencies and their partners work collaboratively to help families experiencing domestic violence. The safety and well-being of child survivors of domestic violence and child maltreatment are closely connected to the safety and well-being of the adult survivor of domestic violence.  For this reason, the QIC-DVCW is testing an Adult & Child Survivor-Centered Approach to addressing the needs of both the parent and child, which includes effectively engaging and working with the person causing them harm.” The site has a resource section that is worth exploring and they will be offering webinars in the future. I look forward to seeing the coming session topics.

    I think it’s supposed to say, “…..effectively engaging and working with the person without causing them harm.” 🙂

    Nope, I think it is meant as written. I believe they are talking about working with abusers/batterers and not just the child or non-offending parent.
