WEBINAR: The Role of an Advocate in Safety Planning
When working with victims of domestic violence one of the most important steps an individual can perform to aid survivors in abusive relationships is to formulate a safety plan with them.
A safety plan is a personalized plan of action that details ways to remain safe while in a relationship, planning to leave, or
after the survivor leaves. A safety plan should represent a joint effort between the individual working with
the survivor and a survivor.
This training will inform attendees on when to safety plan, how to begin a safety plan, the process of safety planning, as well as suggestions for how to work with victims in various situations where their risk of lethality is high.
