Who needs training on domestic violence issues?
Everyone. When one in three American women will be the victim of domestic
violence in her lifetime, this is an issue that touches all of our lives in some way.
We can make our neighborhoods, schools and workplaces safer by knowing what to
look for and how to deal with these types of issues when they arise.
We will train any size group and can adapt most trainings to reach any audience:
- Medical professionals/EMTs
- Service and philanthropic groups
- Pastors and church groups
- Private companies with any size workforce
- Government office workers
- Law enforcement, attorneys, judges, and court staff
- Social service providers
- School principals, teachers and counselors
- Teens and young school children
- Child care providers
What can I expect from a Domestic Violence training session?
Most of our presentations have PowerPoint slides and various handouts to accompany them.
Some presentations may include audio or video scenarios segments or live 911 calls to
enhance the learning experience.
All of our training sessions are taught by experienced domestic violence professionals
who are knowledgeable about the topics and equipped to counsel a participant who may need
additional attention at the end of a session. Who the trainer will be depends upon your
audience, the topic and the availability of staff.
