End Abuse offers trainings designed to meet the ongoing needs of advocates and activists, many of whom work for local domestic abuse programs. We offer core trainings on issues that consistently serve to prepare advocates to assist victims and survivors, as well as opportunities to explore issues that have emerged as particularly relevant for survivors & advocates. End Abuse members attend most training events at no cost.
