Domestic violence is one of the most reported maltreatment's to the DCF Florida Abuse Hotline. A majority of the studies done on the co-occurrence of domestic violence and child maltreatment reveal that there are adult and child victims in 30 to 60 percent of families experiencing domestic violence.  This co-occurrence has compelled child welfare and domestic violence programs to re-evaluate their services and interventions with families experiencing both forms of abuse. The Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence will host a one day Child Welfare Regional Training Institute in Tampa, Florida for local child welfare professionals, domestic violence advocates, and community partners. The purpose of the trainings are to enhance collaboration between Certified Domestic Violence Centers and child welfare agencies, to build the capacity of child welfare and partnering agencies around the dynamics of domestic violence, and to discuss best practices when working with families experiencing both domestic violence and child maltreatment.
