"Unraveling the Gender Paradox at the Center of the Safe & Together Model"

Speaker: David Mandel, MA, LPC, Safe & Together Institute

Thursday, March 4, 2021
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST



Gendered and non-gendered frameworks for domestic violence are pitted against each other as if they represent two mutually exclusive universes. This does not need to be the case. To be useful, a domestic violence assessment and practice approach needs to be accurate, comprehensive and holistic. In this webinar, David Mandel, founder of the Safe & Together Institute, will help participants, better identify:

•    how practicing without a gendered analysis of parenting expectations and societal dynamics fails the test for accurate, comprehensive and holistic assessments and interventions
•    how a behavioral focus allows you to assess danger and risk in diverse situations including men's violence against women, women's use of violence against men, abuse in same sex relationship and lateral violence

Presenter: David Mandel, MA, LPC, has over 25 years' experience in the domestic violence field. His Safe and Together model designed to improve case practice and cross system collaboration in domestic  violence cases involving children has trained CPS workers and their community partners in more than 10 states and in the United Kingdom, Australia, the Republic of Ireland, Scotland, and Singapore.
