Domestic Violence Forum: Breaking the Silos to Break the Silence

Domestic violence not only affects children, but their families and communities as well. Join us for this online forum series addressing different topics relevant to families impacted by domestic violence, through guest speakers, videos, and conversations among participants and forum facilitators. The forums aim to increase communication between agencies with similar goals but different methods of accomplishing them; all agencies that provide resources for families impacted by domestic violence will have a place to talk, learn, and collaborate. When we break out of our silos, we break the silence of domestic violence.

Participants*: NC DSS Child Welfare workers and supervisors, DSS county staff, domestic violence advocacy and batterer intervention programs, foster and resource parents, Guardians ad Litem, group home and private licensing staff, and adoption agencies

This Forum is No Longer Offered at This Time.

*NCDSS Child Welfare workers, supervisors, and program managers may also be interested in Domestic Violence Policy and Best Practices in Child Welfare. Information about this 3-day in-person training is available at
