Basic Training: It’s In Their Culture

September 26, 2018

$50 – $100

DESCRIPTION

This training is for faith leaders, community leaders, natural supporters, and language interpreters.


Dr. Warrier is the director of training and technical assistance at the Battered Women’s Justice Project. Previously she was the director of the community response policy and training of the New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence.

This training will explore the various socio-cultural elements that produce different experiences not only for ethnocultural families seeking sanctuary through family violence programs but also for professionals connected to the issue.

The training will examine 1) ways in which professionals work with those seeking assistance, 2) prevention and intervention strategies that are able to address cultural considerations to family violence without undermining victim rights or justice and 3) work with professionals to strengthen overall responses to family violence.


COFEE & LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED
