David Mandel, MA, LPC

David MandelWith over 25 years’ experience in the domestic violence field, David’s international training and consulting focuses on improving systems' responses to domestic violence when children are involved. Through years of work with child welfare systems, he has developed the Safe and Together™ model to improve case practice and cross system collaboration in domestic violence cases involving children. He has also identified how a perpetrator pattern-based approach can improve our ability to help families and promote the development of domestic violence-informed child welfare systems.

David and his staff have consulted to United States’ child welfare systems in a number of states including New York, Louisiana, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Michigan, the District of Columbia, Vermont, Oregon and Ohio. This includes overseeing a statewide network of domestic violence consultants for the Connecticut Department of Children and Families; training domestic violence subject matter experts for Florida’s Department of Children and Families; improving collaboration between child welfare and domestic violence advocates in Colorado; and the development of certified Safe and Together trainer network to support the roll out of differential response in all 88 Ohio county child welfare agencies.

David Mandel and Associates collaborates with domestic violence agencies such as the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Ohio Domestic Violence Network. Their Safe and Together™ Model Advocacy Institute has helped domestic violence advocates from across the country improve their ability to collaborate with child welfare, and advocate for child welfare-involved adult and child domestic violence survivors. Their Safe and Together™ Core Practice Certification model is being implemented in the US and internationally. David Mandel & Associates trainings have been delivered in the United Kingdom, Australia, the Republic of Ireland, Scotland and Singapore.

David has written journal articles on batterer’s perceptions of their children’s exposure to domestic violence and the intersection of domestic violence and child welfare practice. His chapter on “Batterers and the Lives of Their Children” was published in the Praeger Series Violence Against Women in Families and Relationships.

FAQs

Tell me more about the Safe & Together Model?

The Safe and Together Model Suite of Tools and Interventions is a perpetrator pattern based, child centered, survivor strengths approach to working with domestic violence.  Developed originally for child welfare systems, it has policy and practice implications for a variety of professionals and systems including domestic violence advocates, family service providers, courts, evaluators, domestic violence community collaboratives and others.   The behavioral focus of the model highlights the “how” of the work, offering practical and concrete changes in practice.  The model has a growing body of evidence associated with it including recent correlations with a reduction in out of home placements in child welfare domestic violence cases.

Organiser

Mallee Family Violence Executive

The Mallee Family Violence Executive (MFVE) engages in early intervention and prevention strategies to prevent future demand for violence related services.

The strategic response to family violence has involved developing a more integrated service response to women’s and children’s needs.

The Mallee Family Violence Executive has endorsed the Victorian state vision which is ‘for women and children to live free from violence in Victoria’.

The integration of family violence services at the local level is a critical step to reduce violence against women and children.
