About the Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody
The Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody (Resource Center) is a part of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. The Resource Center provides training and technical assistance to professionals seeking to improve outcomes on child protection cases that involve domestic violence, while engaging in policy reform in those areas. The Resource Center provided technical assistance related to the Greenbook Initiative, a federally funded project that saw child welfare workers, domestic violence advocates, and family court judges change their approach to domestic violence to better help battered women and their children achieve safety. The Resource Center also provides support and consultation around custody and parenting time decision-making and safe options for victims of domestic violence and their children.
Often, professionals seek our help putting together their individual presentations or designing multi-disciplinary educational workshops. The Resource Center has provided assistance to judges and others with their individual presentations on protection orders, elder abuse, child custody, and a host of other issues related to domestic violence. The Resource Center tailors materials and presentations to specific state, tribal, or local jurisdictions.
In addition to educational programming, staff (policy analysts, attorneys, resource specialists) can conduct research on cases, statutes, and social science, model court processes, as well as provide individualized consultation on content and troubleshoot situations. The Resource Center also maintains a lending library of books, videos, curricula, bench tools, policy manuals, and other publications for its constituents.
