STOP Domestic Violence Training
The Office of Victim Advocate has received a STOP Violence Against Women Grant and partnered with the Finding Jenn’s Voice film and curriculum to deliver a FREE statewide training like none other! We will be traveling across the state (10 locations in 2 years) to bring to you a training focused on
• recognizing the various aspects of domestic violence
• the protocols we use to combat this epidemic
• the tools you need for effective supervision of an offender
• access to services for victims
Dates and locations are announced below. Each training will be one full day; lunch will be an opportunity to network with colleagues and get out to enjoy the day. (We are unable to provide lunch with this grant funding.)
