Legal Advocacy: Understanding Survivors' Rights and Responsibilities in the Child Protective Services System



Summary
Survivors oftentimes interact with a variety of systems as a result of being victimized. CPS may play a significant intervening role in the long term permanency and stability of parents and children living in homes where domestic violence has occurred. Advocates are critical to helping survivors understand when and why CPS may become involved in their families as well as how to best navigate this complex, and at times, seemingly adversarial system. This webinar will provide an overview of the stages and potential outcomes of a CPS case and discuss model approaches to helping survivors navigating this system to promote resiliency among children and positive, empowered parents.
