From the Greenbook to Family First: A Webinar Connecting Domestic Violence and Child Welfare

August 20, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Achieving safety and well-being for families experiencing domestic violence continues to be a challenge. Professionals have called for elements of child welfare practice that The Greenbook (NCJFCJ 1999) did not fully explore, including the implicit bias and systemic racism impacting families of color, the need for total family engagement (including fathers), and the need for fuller understanding of protective factors in these cases. Families First legislation may present courts and communities an opportunity to do community-based prevention work which builds upon The Greenbook to take up these important issues.
