Guardians ad Litem: A SAFeR Approach to Enhancing Domestic Violence Practice - Self-Paced Course
BWJP, in partnership with NCJFCJ, has created an online course titled Guardians at Litem: A SAFeR Approach to Enhancing Domestic Violence Practice.
The course consists of five self-paced modules. Throughout the modules, there are opportunities to improve skills, connect with peers, hear from subject matter experts, and gain practical experience through course exercises. Additionally, there are other helpful resources under course materials. This course is specifically designed to enhance GAL work on cases with domestic violence while highlighting how to use the SAFeR approach in everyday work.
Being a Guardian ad Litem is a difficult yet rewarding job. At the end of this course, GALs will be better able to screen for domestic violence, assess the nature, context, and effects of domestic violence, and tailor your recommendations to respond to the lived experience of the survivor.
This course, and related materials, was supported by Grant No. 15JOVW-22-GK-04032-MUMU awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice.
