Fall 2018 Domestic Violence Training
This comprehensive, 25-hour training covers a range of topics related to abuse and domestic violence, as well as working with survivors. This training series is designed for a broad range of professionals, not just Domestic Violence Advocates or other direct service staff. This training series is designed to be beneficial for activists, advocates, service providers, social workers, community members, and all those interested in learning more about supporting and working with survivors of intimate partner violence. Some sessions will be more relevant than others depending on your professional or community role, though all are welcome at every session. Please see individual session descriptions for details.
In an effort to reduce our paper consumption, each participant will be given access to a shared Google Drive where resources, reading lists, and contact information from each session will be available.
