Greenbook Project Organizations
To Share, Learn Best Practices
Cross System Training for organizations and attorneys participating in the Grafton County Greenbook Project initiative takes place August 31 at the Waterville Valley Conference Center. Attendees will share and learn best practices in co-occurrence cases related to their involvement with Greenbook. Hosted by a multi-disciplinary committee, training organizers plan to disseminate the products that each discipline developed to document practice guidelines for co-occurrence cases. Sustainability planning is also scheduled. The keynote speaker for the event will be Sharwline Nicholson, recipient of the Susan Schecter Leadership Development Fellowship at the Family Violence Prevention Fund.
The Greenbook Project, is a public-private effort designed to coordinate and bridge the gap among judges, child welfare agencies and domestic violence service providers to better meet the needs of victims of family violence and child abuse and neglect.
Grafton County is one of six pilot sites in the nation for this innovative project, which is federally funded by the US Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services.
