The principle of survivor confidentiality is central to the services provided by domestic violence programs. Yet survivors and the advocates who serve them often encounter a web of agencies asking for private, personal identifying information. A coordinated community response (CCR) is key in creating safety for survivors, but this coordination often opens pitfalls for violation of survivor confidentiality. In the last of this 3 part webinar series, we will explore how to safely collaborate with other agencies and individuals in the community.
This webinar will include guest presenters from member programs who will share real examples of collaboration in action. The webinar will outline a survivor-centered approach to creating collaborative community partnerships. We will review the differences in confidentiality requirements between partner agencies and identify the roles of various agencies within a collaboration. Most importantly, this webinar will guide programs in developing strategies for meaningful and productive agency collaboration while adhering to confidentiality requirements.
