About the Training

Coordinated Community Response (CCR) is an innovative criminal justice intervention model that was developed in Duluth, Minnesota designed to coordinate the community’s response to address violence against women and girls.  More commonly known as “Integrated Response” in Australia, it involves a multidisciplinary approach to ensure each disciplinary agency collaborates to provide a consistent response from law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, probation officers, advocates in shelters and men’s domestic violence intervention programs. At the core of the Integrated Response is tracking the system’s response to domestic and family violence cases and monitoring compliance with policies and procedures designed for women’s safety and to ensure perpetrator accountability.

This training emphasizes a multidisciplinary coordinated approach to domestic and family violence. Participants will work closely with a team of expert practitioners to explore the CCR concept developed in the United States, develop a common understanding and framework from which to respond to domestic and family violence in their communities, and create policies and response protocols.

This training is ideal for those seeking to strengthen their current community response to domestic and family violence.

Because this is a highly interactive series of 2.5 hour workshops over three days, registration is limited to 15 participants and costs $225 AUD. To sign up now click the ‘pay here’ button corresponding with the workshop you can attend.
