Bea Coté, IMPACT Founder and Executive Director, will co-present at a workshop during the NCCADV conference on Thursday, May 19th at 1:30 pm:
It Takes a Village: Incorporating Batterer Intervention into a Community Coordinated Response
Workshop Description: Research has shown that a Coordinated Community Response (CCR) is vital in keeping victims of domestic violence safe and holding batterers accountable. CCR teams are made up of victim advocates, law enforcement, judges, probation/parole, child protection services, the media, health care professionals, the faith community, mental health providers and correctional facilities. Batterer Intervention Programs are not included in the work of a CCR. This workshop will provide an overview of CCR's in North Carolina, and how BIP's can engage key community partners to work together in reducing domestic violence in their area.
