ABSTRACT
The goals of the Greenbook Initiative are to improve the ways the three systems-dependency courts, child protective services, and domestic violence service providers-work together and with their broader community to address the problems of families with co-occurring domestic violence and child maltreatment. To accomplish this, the Ssix federally-funded demonstration communities are undertaking within and across system change in such areas as screening and assessment, information sharing, reauthorization, cross-training, safety planning and batterer accountability, service provision, case management, and advocacy to pursue this goal. This paper will address the overall evaluation strategy and preliminary results from the process evaluation of Greenbook.
