Understanding DV Dynamics & Interventions (a.k.a. DV 101)
In this training, the presenter will break down the legal and operating definitions of domestic violence and help the audience to understand its roots in power and control. The training will cover the cycle of violence and how this cycle plays out in real case scenarios. The presenter will offer best practice strategies for basic crisis intervention and handling disclosures of domestic violence.
Parenting in the Context of Domestic Violence
Survivors and their children often still encounter abusive control post-separation through custody orders and shared parenting arrangements. This training will focus on the impacts of domestic violence exposure on children and the ways in which abusers use children as tools of abuse after separation. Strategies for coping with counter-parenting will be provided as well as information on ways to advocate within the civil legal system.
