Creating an Effective Coordinated Community Response to Battering:

A Training

Designed for a multidisciplinary audience of dispatchers, law enforcement, prosecutors, probation officers, judges, court administrators, advocates, batterers’ group facilitators, related human service providers, community leaders and activists. This 1 or 2 day training provides participants with an opportunity to broaden their understanding of the criminal justice Coordinated Community Response (CCR) model. Participants will learn:


• Assumptions and principles that guide inter-agency interventions in these cases
• Individual agency as well as collective goals, roles and tasks in a CCR
• How to assess the effectiveness of current agency interventions
• How to enhance responses through:
    o     Inter-agency policy and procedural development 
    o     Inter-agency systems of accountability 
    o     Coordination of information gathering and dissemination
    o      Case review and consultation
    o      Individual and cross skills-based training program


We will plan the agenda carefully with you to provide the fundamentals of a CCR while offering specialized topics that fit your community, address local gaps in understanding and help your inter-agency team build a shared vision in the community.


In order for organizers and participants to derive maximum benefit from the training, we suggest that other technical assistance options are also selected, such as:


" Key Players Implementation Consultation"

"Strategic Planning for CCR Coordinators and Domstic Violence Program",and/or
