The DCP&P Four Tier Model                                      

Peter Frost and Leslie Malkin.

This training is designed to introduce and familiarize domestic violence advocates with the new DCPP regulations, policies and practice regarding child abuse and neglect investigative findings described as the “Four Tier Model.”

Beginning in April of 2013, this new model replaced the two tier model. Previously cases were “substantiated” or not “substantiated.”  Now, there can be four different findings and which finding is applied has implications for whether a record of the allegation is kept.

Through the use of case scenarios, participants will understand how DCPP caseworkers make their determinations regarding child abuse and neglect allegations. Peter Frost, DCPP Training Academy, and Leslie Malkin, NJCBW,will team teach this training with an emphasis on the implications for domestic violence victim/survivors.

Dangerous Silences: Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Forced Marriage in South Asian Communities                                  

Shamita DasDasgupta, Manavi

Current research indicates that to be effective, both prevention and intervention strategies with victims and perpetrators of domestic and sexual violence must be culture specific. Thus, New Jersey’s increasing populations of people who trace their heritage to Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka makes it important for anti-violence advocates to develop culturally appropriate ways of addressing issues of abuse in South Asian communities. In this workshop, advocates will gain a clearer understanding of family structure, as well as societal and cultural norms that affect South Asian women’s experiences of IPV and their decisions to ameliorate the situations. Through a journey of family traditions, immigration histories, and forces of globalization, we will explore the violence and silences that are imposed on South Asian women in the U.S. Manavi’s focus here is to enhance service provision capacities of anti-domestic- and sexual violence organizations and strengthen advocates’ intervention proficiencies.
