Training Description

This introductory training will provide trainees an overview of domestic violence. The training will provide a general overview for trainees to understand the trauma caused by domestic violence and how it impacts system involved youth outcomes. The training covers the cycles of violence and how to describe this to system involved youth and families. During this training, participants will discuss and share resources for domestic violence related issues such as, survivor, perpetrator, and children. The training will discuss how the cycle of violence has negative risk factors for children and how to hold these discussions when working with system-involved youth and families.
