Date Recorded:

April 13, 2016

This webinar will provide an overview of the Promising Futures: Best Practices for Serving Children, Youth, and Parents Experiencing Domestic Violence website and related tools. The webinar will also discuss a new tool developed by the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence that can help domestic violence and sexual assault programs assess their capacity and programming related to supporting parents and their children. This tool will help programs assess and reflect on opportunities for growth and development in their services and is currently being implemented in four rural programs in Vermont.

  • Be familiar with the Promising Futures website and related tools that are available for domestic violence programs
