Events

NRCDV’s training events aim to build individual, organizational, and systemic capacity to provide empowering, trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and survivor-defined intervention and prevention efforts. NRCDV staff and consultants serve as a key training resource for domestic violence coalitions, federal agencies and others needing trainers with particular expertise.


Educational Programming

What is our expertise? NRCDV's trainers provide educational programming on a variety of topics including, but not limited to:

Survivor-centered Advocacy
This training explores ways to advocate for survivors in ways that support their right to self-determination. We take a look at leadership in advocacy, principles in survivor-centered advocacy, intention vs. impact of advocacy practices, shelter rule reduction and promising practices in survivor-centered advocacy through a racial justice lens.


Building Promising Futures: Services and Outcomes for Enhancing the Response of Domestic Violence Programs to Children & Youth
This training explores ways to advocate for survivors in ways that support their right to self-determination. We take a look at leadership in advocacy, principles in survivor-centered advocacy, intention vs. impact of advocacy practices, shelter rule reduction and promising practices in survivor-centered advocacy through a racial justice lens.  


Self-care and Wellness for the Advocate
Working with survivors of domestic violence can be stressful for advocates, learning about  the abuse survivors endure day after day can have an impact on an advocates propensity for compassion fatigue. Through this training, participants will increase their understanding of vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue and will learn how to recognize the indicators of compassion fatigue and burnout as well burnout prevention strategies including how to create a self-care plan.


Serving Male Survivors
This workshop explores how different ideas of masculinity affect help-seeking, how systemic barriers and challenges prevents us from doing effective work with male and male identified survivors and how the dynamics of violence are different when working with male survivors, including those who are gay, bisexual or trans identified.  In addition, this workshop addresses  compliance issues and doing system advocacy for male survivors. 


Integrating a Racial Justice Lens in all Aspects of your Work
Domestic violence is linked to a web of oppressive systems such as racism, that disproportionately affects women, children, and other historically marginalized groups. Experiencing multiple forms of oppression increases one’s vulnerability to violence, and can make it more challenging for victims to find the help and support that is responsive to their individual needs. By applying a racial justice lens, we acknowledge the role of racism and privilege in perpetuating violence and oppressive behavior in our culture. This training and facilitated discussion exposes the impact of our own (unintended) biases on the quality of our work, and challenges all isms and privileges as a roadblock to effective action. The facilitators also discuss ethical communication principles for resolving conflict, barriers to alliance building, and strategies for becoming an inclusive organization.
