Keeping Children & Mothers Safe and Engaging Men who use Abusive Behaviours: VAW and CAS Collaboration
The Learning Network hosted a Forum on September 19, 2013 on VAW and CAS collaboration. The focus was on keeping children and mothers safe and engaging men who use abusive behaviours. The learning objectives included: understanding the issue within a gender-based analysis; identifying principles and practice strategies for engaging men who use violence; identifying risk factors and potential assessment tools for evaluating child risk in the context of domestic violence; and identifying promising practices in VAW and CAS collaboration. The power point presentations used by speakers at the Forum are below.
