Due to the current public health crisis, we have canceled this training. We hope to be able to hold our September 16-17 session as scheduled.
DCADV offers a semi-annual two-day Domestic Violence 101 (DV101) Training. DV101 is the Coalition’s signature training event and attracts a multidisciplinary audience from across the state. Participants typically include domestic violence service providers, nonprofit organizations, law enforcement agencies, and state employees working on issues ranging from behavioral health services to human resources to the criminal justice system.

Topics covered during the training include:
- History & Culture of Domestic Violence
- Dynamics of Abusive Relationships
- Empowerment Advocacy
- Risk Assessment
- Safety Planning
- Community Resources
- Criminal Justice and Civil Justice Systems
