Futures Without Violence: Expanding the ability of the child welfare system to serve families experiencing domestic violence

Futures Without Violence is leading a five-year project to build a Quality Improvement Center (QIC) that will pilot test best practices for how the child welfare system can better serve families experiencing violence and abuse to increase family safety, permanency, and well-being. 

An important first step will be for QIC stakeholders and others to learn how the public and policymakers currently understand the child welfare system and why expanding its capacity to address domestic violence is vital. To that end, Berkeley Media Studies Group will evaluate how domestic violence and the child welfare system appear and intersect in the news, explore the implications of that framing for the work of the QIC project going forward, and offer recommendations for journalists to improve reporting on child welfare and domestic violence issues.
