Description

Intervening with perpetrators, who are the source of the harm to child, partner and family functioning, is essential for domestic violence-informed systems. In this episode, David & Ruth talk about the third principle of the Safe & Together Model which focuses on intervening with the perpetrator to reduce risk and harm to children.  The conversation covers:

  • the importance of a broad defintion of "accountability" 
  • how micro -practices around language and documentation are the foundation of accountability in a  domestic violence-informed  system 
  • how tradition definitions of perpetrator accountability can contribute to racial inequity in the response of systems 
  • how practitioners can increase their capacity to keep the focus on the perpetrator and change (and away from a "failure-to-protect" approach)
