PREVENTION EDUCATION 

Beyond intervention, Turning Point can provide educational programs to all ages and types of groups. Our Prevention efforts are designed to stop domestic violence in the next generation as well as reduce risk of its occurrence in those who already have risk factors. We provide prevention education in the schools, to at-risk youth, educators, coaches, youth care workers, to healthcare providers around universal screening, with community partners, first responders, churches and civic groups, and in pre-professional/college classrooms. Our trainings are designed to meet the needs of the group we are with, and to create a community of empowered bystanders. Our goal is to work toward the elimination of domestic violence.

Professional Training

Within our service area, we provide free, professional training related to domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Professional trainings are developed with each profession, community, and department in mind, to best meet the needs of the participants and consider the local available resources. Professional trainings are available for all professions, including Advocates, Attorneys, CASA/GAL volunteers, Corrections personnel, Court personnel, Department of Child Services, Law Enforcement, Medical and Mental Health Care providers, and other professionals who encounter domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking in their professions.

Turning Point’s Director of Legal Services & Training is a licensed Indiana attorney and will work with you in designing a training and will submit all materials to request CLE approval.

Turning Point is an approved law enforcement training provider in the State of Indiana, which allows our law enforcement trainings to be counted towards the annual continuing education requirements.
