Topics covered include the dynamics of domestic violence, sexual violence and child abuse, trauma informed approaches, strength-based safety planning, hope centered advocacy, and community collaboration strategies. Sessions will also focus on state confidentiality requirements, violence prevention, working with diverse communities, community, and national resources as well as strategies for social change.

Do you offer a certification class that I am able to attend after work hours ?
Thanks so much
Thank you for your question! Right now, we do not offer training after work hours. One day, we hope to offer an evening only training. I added your name and email to our list to let you know when that happens. Let me know if you have any questions or need additional information!
Is this training also self-paced online?
The training is live for the most part, but there are homework assignments and a paper you do on your time, but there is a deadline.
How do I become an intern for the fee to be waived?
If you are interested in becoming an intern, please submit a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. What are the next steps after getting a certificate?
2. Can I work in the actual field with this certificate?
3. Are there daily assignments and a paper in every class?
Hi Yvonne. I am going to forward your question to Amanda Posila, who runs the training for us. You can also reach out to her by emailing at email@example.com. Thank you!
