June Virtual 40 Hour Domestic Violence Training

June 2, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The 40-Hour Domestic Violence Training is the state-required certificate training for new domestic violence professionals, including volunteers and interns.

The Network’s 40-Hour is considered a model training program. Evidence-based popular education is practiced throughout, and all sessions are led by a team of local experts that use strengths-based and trauma-informed approaches. The training begins by grounding professionals in the philosophical frameworks of the gender-based violence movement. Skill-building activities help participants engage in not only intervention strategies, but models of prevention and transformation. Participants will leave with a comprehensive understanding of domestic violence, and the best practices to safely and appropriately respond to victims and survivors. Individuals must attend all required sessions in order to receive a Certificate of Completion.
