This webinar is free and open to the public.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience domestic violence from their intimate partner.*
Intimate Partner Violence is an epidemic that affects not only the survivor, their families but also the community as a whole. As providers, it’s important to understand how to assess properly, educate survivors and others, and provide trauma-informed practices that help build connections and promote resilience. Survivors need spaces where they can be honest without judgment, where they can be empowered with choices and given the space to determine what is best for them. This webinar will teach you how to feel confident in working with survivors of trauma. This webinar is eligible for 1 CE Credit.
