Working with Sexual and Domestic Violence Survivors for Healthcare Practitioners
February 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This 3-hour training will provide an overview of sexual and domestic violence. We will examine the dynamics of domestic violence and sexual violence, as well as explore safety issues, the neurobiology of trauma, and the psychosocial impact of sexual assault and domestic violence. We will focus on best practices for intervention, advocacy, and health care provider response. Participants will gain tools for working with domestic violence and sexual assault survivors in ways that convey belief, build trust, and mitigate trauma.
