This training emphasizes a multidisciplinary coordinated approach to domestic violence: participants will work with a team of practitioners to explore the CCR concept, develop a common understanding and framework from which to respond to intimate partner violence in their communities, and develop policies and response protocols. It is ideal for those wishing to create a coordinated community response and for those who want to strengthen their current community response to domestic violence.
