  • Two Day Advanced Training: Working with Victims & Offenders of Domestic Violence in Multiple Settings

    Two Day Advanced Training: Working with Victims & Offenders of Domestic Violence in Multiple Settings
    From $235.00

    The complexity of risk and safety shapes work with victims and offenders of domestic violence in multiple settings.

    This training addresses risk, culture, assumptions, and institutional impacts to help practitioners to partner more effectively with others to work towards victim safety and offender accountability. Victim/survivors need support for autonomy; many offenders can be engaged in a change process and be held accountable. Dismantling the misconceptions we have about victims' and offenders' day-to-day lives enables more effective work across disciplines to prevent domestic violence.
