HOW TO RECOGNIZE, RESPOND, AND REFER
It takes a whole community to end Intimate Partner Violence, and the first step is to understand the issue.
YWCA Spokane’s Intimate Partner Violence Training is a great way to get your organization involved in ending the silence surrounding domestic violence.
Intimate Partner Domestic Violence Training
In addition to our work responding to survivors of Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence, YWCA Spokane’s Education & Outreach Coordinator holds trainings for organizations who would like to be more informed about Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence.
Each training is customized to the group, organization, church, business, etc and will last between 1.5 and 5 hours. Trainings can be adjusted to serve a wide variety of audiences, from 15 people to 100 people. Training is open to experts and beginners and may be made public or private.
What You Will Learn
The topics at each training can vary depending on organizational need and time allotted. At most trainings, we cover the following:
- What is Intimate Partner Violence?
- Myths of Intimate Partner Violence
- What are our own biases?
- Who is affected by Intimate Partner Violence?
- What are the indicators of Intimate Partner Violence?
- What are the root causes of Intimate Partner Violence?
- Who are YWCA Spokane advocates, and what are their roles?
- How can I help someone I suspect is experiencing Intimate Partner Violence?
- Am I a bystander to Intimate Partner Violence?
- How do I access YWCA Spokane’s services?
- How do I end the silence about intimate partner violence?
