August 13-15, 2019

Radisson Blu Mall of America Hotel—Minneapolis MN


NIWRC is excited to announce the upcoming Specialty Institute “Coming Together to Create a Cultural Response to Address the Impact of Domestic Violence on Woman and their Children,” in Minneapolis MN on August 13-15, 2019.  The question, “what about the children?” has been in the hearts, minds and souls of advocates, families, communities, child welfare agencies, social services programs, law enforcement and the courts for decades.  And while there has been a lot of discussion, policies and practices around the topic of domestic violence and the intersection of child welfare, there continues to be a lot of unanswered questions, unresolved issues, misunderstandings and even harmful practices.  This Specialty Institute is committed to addressing these issues from the root causes to identifying cultural best practices, strength based approaches and practice-based policy recommendations.  This Specialty Institute is designed to strengthen our advocacy, promote tribal sovereignty and build our capacity to respond appropriately and effectively to children and their non-offending parent who are impacted by domestic violence. 

Please register early for this outstanding training event.  Registration is limited to 50 participants.  The registration fee is $100.00.
