It will provide an introduction to trauma informed practices, including consideration of the effect of trauma on the advocate. We will explore concrete ways to connect with and support survivors, and navigate systems survivors often access. Restraining Order training combines information about relevant state statutes with hands-on practice to prepare advocates for assisting survivors with restraining orders.
