Family Doors

The Family DOORS (Detection of Overall Risk Screen) training complements the AVERT Family Violence training. The Family DOORS framework helps detect and evaluate risks before they escalate and tailor an appropriate response. 

DOORS takes a broad definition of ‘risk’ to help practitioners evaluate all factors to personal and interpersonal safety:

  • Adult, infant and child well-being
  • Conflict and communication
  • Parenting stress
  • Collateral stressors.
