Creating Trauma Informed Inclusive Domestic Violence Services & Organizations

 Registration is closed for this event
This summer the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition is excited to announce the launch of a new training curriculum, "Creating Trauma Informed Inclusive Domestic Violence Services & Organizations", a curriculum developed by the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health, and adapted for use in Utah by the UDVC. Registration is now open for the first scheduled training.

Trauma informed interventions are at the core of working effectively with victims and their children. Understanding trauma and the importance of trauma-informed approaches can help to create the types of welcoming, emotionally safe environments and relationships that support survivors and their children. This training offers strategies to enhance domestic violence advocacy through implementation of trauma informed practices. Ultimately, the training will support and guide development of trauma-informed organizations that more fully meet the needs of survivors and the advocates who do this work.

The purpose of this training is to help domestic violence service providers and community allies in understanding and responding to the symptoms of chronic interpersonal trauma and traumatic stress across the life span. The training facilitates incorporation of skills and supports that are empathetic and empowering to survivors and demonstrates understanding of the impact of trauma on advocates and survivors alike.

There will be two opportunities to attend this training in the Summer/Fall of 2014. Please note that the training is split into two parts which will be held at different times. The first part consists of two full days of training and then the second section consists of one day of training. Training will be offered in the following locations and at the following times;
