Supporting Safety and Change: A Policy Framework for Engaging with Men who Use Violence

Date Recorded:

October 18, 2016


As part of the National Institute on Fatherhood, Visitation, and Domestic Violence, we have heard from grantees around the country that they continue to struggle in engaging with men who use violence as a leading strategy for supporting safety and well being for women and children. While many have shifted practices, many are still striving to institutionalize their approach both in their programs and in their larger communities’ response to ending violence against women and children. In May 2015 Futures Without Violence, in partnership with Inspire Action for Social Change released a publication titled “Creating Opportunities for Safety and Change in Supervised Visitation Programs: A policy framework for engaging men who use violence.” Presenters will delve into the nuts and bolts of the framework and engage participants with strategies for using the policy framework to enhance safety and create opportunities for change for women, children and men.


By the end of this webinar participants will be better able to:

  • Increase understanding of the benefits of engaging with men who use violence.

  • Develop tools for learning from women, children, men and community partners about the needs of families experiencing domestic violence.

  • Enhance capacity to apply policy framework in programs and across the larger community response to address domestic violence.
