Location: WITC Administrative Office: 505 Pine Ridge Drive, Shell Lake, WI 54871 Registration Dates: 4/21 - 6/5

 

Description: Regional Advocates Days for Training or "RADs" are opportunities for advocates from End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin member programs to take a day to learn, both from the scheduled presenters and from one another. RADs are held throughout the year and regionally, so a day for professional education can happen closer to home.

 

Join End Abuse staff and fellow advocates for a large group training in the morning and breakout sessions in the afternoon. Director of Justice Systems Tess Meuer will be available to answer legal questions during breaks and over lunch.

 

Morning Session: Join Naomi Cummings, Executive Director of Bridge to Hope, to discuss the Future of Services: As part of a changing movement, what strengths can DV/SA services providers build on, what aspects of our services no longer serve us well, and what changes can we make as we move forward?

 

Afternoon Breakouts: Naomi will lead a discussion about intersectionality: How can we address the larger systemic issues that generate and sustain oppression? Megan L. Sprecher, Immigration & Poverty Law Attorney, will speak about school discipline laws and their impact on the life of a child who acts out after witnessing/experiencing abuse.

Supporting Families Who Have Experienced Trauma

Registration Information Coming Soon!

 

Date & Time: 8/15/17 & 8/16/17 from 8:30am-4:30pm (start & end time tentative) Location: End Domestic Abuse WI Training Center, Madison, WI

 

Description: Harbor House Community Education Coordinator Tracy Plamann will facilitate this unique trauma-sensitive training. Many families who seek our help have lived through multiple traumatic experiences in which domestic abuse has been prominent. The wounds of childhood trauma often continue to drive behavior, feelings and attitudes into adulthood, and play a powerful role in parenting. Understanding how trauma affects children and parents can help us to make sense of sometimes baffling and challenging behavior. When we explore what is behind such behaviors we are better prepared to help families cope with the effects of trauma.

 

Focusing on the needs of parents as well as children, this program will encompass communication skills and techniques, ways to reduce stress and promote more positive experiences within the family and the agency. This training will help domestic abuse program staff build their capacity for supporting families. Participants who complete the training will be equipped with materials and information to share with others in their organizations and communities. We strongly encourage individuals to attend with one or more staff from their agency.
