Shifting the Paradigm: Perpetrator Engagement and Responsibility in DV
October 6, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am PDTFree
CVCA members, Cal OES funded partners, and statewide direct service providers are invited to join us for an interactive, two-hour training on shifting the paradigm from the traditional “failure to protect” to a safety organized approach to domestic violence. This training will focus on partnering with the survivor, perpetrator engagement and responsibility, and support professionals’ awareness of how implicit bias, gender stereotypes, and parenting double standards impact perpetrator engagement. CVCA is proud to welcome Luck Luckey as our symposium speaker.
Luck worked for more than 17 years as a Senior Protective Services Worker with Child Welfare Services (CWS). Within CWS, Luck specialized in Emergency Response (ER), Domestic Violence, Safety-Organized Practice (SOP), Structured Decision Making (SDM) and Cultural Responsiveness to all children and families. Luck has trained across the United States and Canada on the implementation and integration of Structured Decision Making (SDM), SOP and various domestic violence practice tools to maintain rigor when partnering with families who are victims of IPV. In addition to child welfare work, Luck is a certified Domestic Violence trainer in the Safe & Together model via The Safe & Together Institute.
Luck is genderqueer, a person on the transgender spectrum, who identifies as non-binary. Luck’s pronouns are: he or she, whatever you see or they/ them/ theirs. Luck is devoted to advocating for, and supporting, LGBTQ+ children, youth, and caregivers and brings their coaching, training and mentoring skills to child welfare workers, foster parents, and the LGBTQ+ community.
