Wednesday, February 27, 2019, Roles, Tasks, Responsibilities for Coordinators in a Coordinated Community Response (e-learning) with Rose Thelen, Praxis CCR Technical Assistance Partner

Coordinated Community Response (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 provide an overview of an on-demand learning course that explores how to create sustainable practices that enhance victim safety and well-being and hold offenders accountable. Participating programs will receive a free copy of 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 environment and expectations
  • Collecting and distilling information to develop potential solutions and facilitate an interagency process for change
