Providing Services for Sexual and Domestic Violence Survivors with Disabilities
March 4 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
This 1-day workshop is a collaboration with Ability 360 and the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence. We will discuss disability history and culture, practical language, and etiquette skills that will help professionals provide better interaction and promote client empowerment and independence. This training will examine the dynamics of sexual and domestic violence, specifically as it relates to survivors with disabilities and how victim service providers can develop culturally responsive services. Attendees will learn how to better serve survivors in this community in order to increase safety and improve their advocacy experience.
