Providing Services for Sexual and Domestic Violence Survivors with Disabilities
July 30 @ 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. The morning session will provide a discussion on disability history and culture, practical language, and etiquette skills will be reviewed that will help professionals provide better interaction and promote client empowerment and independence. We will provide an overview of the dynamics of sexual and domestic violence, specifically as it relates to survivors with disabilities. Attendees will learn how to better serve survivors in this community in order to increase safety and improve their advocacy experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with organizations who directly serve people with disabilities and organizations that serve survivors of sexual and domestic violence.
