    Roles, Tasks, Responsibilities for Coordinators in a CCR

    *Speakers: Rose Thelen, Praxis CCR Technical Assistance Partner

    CCR coordinators are often perceived as the person who plans and facilitates task force, interagency, or CCR team meetings. To be effective, however, the coordinator’s job must encompass
    much more than that; s/he translates problems survivors experience with the system into solutions that agencies can implement. Coordinators must collaborate with advocates, key community and agency leaders, and front line practitioners. This session will explore how to advocate for sustainable practices that enhance victim safety and well-being and hold offenders accountable based on strategies taught in Essential Skills in Coordinating Your Community Response to Battering: An E-Learning Course for CCR Coordinators**. Join us to discuss:

    • Grounding system reform efforts in the experiences of survivors,
    • Identifying and documenting gaps in public records such as police reports, policies, protocols, and procedures,
    • Observing practitioners in action to understand their work environments and expectations, and
    • Collecting and distilling information to develop potential solutions and facilitate an interagency process for change.

    **Participating Rural grantee programs will receive a free copy of the E-Learning Course after the webinar.
