These conferences will provide concrete practice strategies and models for incorporating the Guiding Principles into everyday practice for supervised visitation and safe exchange services that account for domestic violence. National experts will provide education on safety and security, policy development, working with men who batter, women who use violence in intimate partner relationships and custody decisions in cases of domestic violence. The conferences will highlight effective practices, offer tips and tools, provide an opportunity for networking, and inspire and invigorate participants.
