Frontline Training: It’s In Their Culture
September 24, 2018$50 – $100
This training is for shelter staff, family violence serving social workers, settlement and integration workers, community outreach workers, and for those who develop prevention and intervention programs.
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.
The 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.
