Introduction to the Safe & Together™ Model

Part of BASW's Professional Practice Series of Webinars

Join Sarah McMillan, Professional Officer from the Scottish Association of Social Work (SASW) in a webinar that will give a brief overview of the foundational concepts of the Safe & Together Model™ and how it can be used as a way to enhance good practice with survivors of domestic abuse.

The overview will:

  • Introduce a perpetrator pattern framework
  • Introduce the Safe & Together Model principles and components and how those guide practice.
  • Share information about 4-day CORE Training and how to progress to this with BASW.

Sarah has been a social worker since 2000, and has worked as a professional officer with SASW since 2016. Sarah has worked extensively with children and families, both in practice team settings and as a Cedar Project Coordinator, supporting women and children who have experienced domestic abuse. In her role at SASW Sarah has developed work around ‘The Social Work Role in Domestic Abuse’, which has included a series of events with partners across Scotland and on-going awareness raising. Sarah has also been instrumental in setting up Communities of Practice, where social workers can reflect and learn together.

Sarah is now a Safe and Together Model™ trainer and is keen to help expand the model to social workers across the UK.
