Promising and emerging domestic violence practices used to address families involved in child welfare cases

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges’ (NCJFCJ) Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody (RCDV: CPC) is working on documenting promising and emerging domestic violence practices and programs used to address families involved in child welfare cases.

Unlike evidence-based efforts, promising and emerging practices and programs may be grounded in a theory but may have little to no data to support such efforts. Examples of these practices or programs include but are not limited to:

  • DV/CW policy reform or development (e.g., Memorandums of Understanding/Agreement, Data sharing, etc.),
  • DV/CW practice reform or development (e.g., cross-trainings, co-location services, risk assessment tools, programs serving underserved DV/CW populations, etc.), or 
  • DV/CW research or evaluation efforts (e.g., data collection efforts, including satisfaction and impact measures of DV/CW programs or practices)

If YOU know of a state- or local-level programs or practices that you think we should include in this report, please share some general contact information with us.

Please feel free to share this information with colleagues who may be doing relevant work in domestic violence and child welfare issues.

This survey will close on June 30, 2017.
