Identifying Common Language for Collaborative Case Management

Victims and DV Offenders, find themselves in a myriad of different interventions and process’s. These efforts result in types of case management/advocacy designed to assist the victim/perpetrator in their efforts to address needs/change and bring some healing/restitution. Few if any of these "identified" case management models incorporate collaboration with providers. An effort to use a common language can not only help with a trauma informed approach but help support the work of multiple providers in common goals and outcomes. Different case management effort is often compounded by the fact that many victims and offenders are also parents. While individual work to address domestic violence is imperative, it come at a cost of ignoring this premise. Utilizing the evidence based 5 Protective Factors could support common language in case management. The 5 Protective Factors are also well documented to support trauma informed approaches with clients. Resilience, Social Connections, Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development, Concrete support in times of need, Healthy Social and Emotional Development are well matched with creating Safety, Trustworthiness and Transparency, Peer Support, Collaboration and Mutuality, Empowerment, and Recognition of Cultural, Historical and Gender Issues.
