DV 201
Steps beyond a basic understanding of Domestic Violence: Building rapport with victims of intimate partner violence.

This presentation will recap Domestic Violence 101 to refresh participants on the basic principles of Domestic Violence, its laws and victims. Furthermore, DV 201 will dive into case studies, methods of interactions, safety planning, and advocacy principles that assist responders in building relationships with victims/survivors of Domestic Violence. This group will discuss best practices, dos and don’ts, and guide participant interactions with scenarios used to evoke discussions related to positive intent with victims. Finally, this group will work to uncover barriers and stigmas associated with corrections, law enforcement, probation, and social services personnel associated with positive outcomes for the clients they work with.
