Call for Virtual Workshop Proposals

The Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence (DCADV) is seeking workshop proposals for our 2022 Virtual Advocates’ Retreat and Conference Series! Each year, this action-oriented conference brings together survivors, advocates, and victim service providers to connect, share information, and engage in critical thinking analysis about efforts needed to address and prevent intimate partner violence, family violence, sexual violence, dating violence, and/or stalking.


This year's virtual conference will consist of a series of webinars held between March and September of 2022.

Workshop proposals being sought include, but are not limited to, the following topic areas:

  • Innovative approaches to abuse intervention/offender treatment services
  • Advanced concepts related to trauma-informed care and victim services
  • Organizational trauma/how agencies/organizations can support their staff
  • Impact of secondary traumatic stress on advocates/services providers
  • Increasing access, services, and support for culturally-specific/underserved populations
  • Racial justice and its relationship to victim advocacy and prevention
  • Evidence-based prevention models and strategies
  • Strategies to strengthen economic supports and promote economic justice
  • Best practices/core skills for hotline service providers

Preference will be given to workshop proposals that:

  • Enhance the skills of participants in building and/or strengthening collaborations and improving advocacy practices, policies, programming and services;
  • Are interactive, learner-centered, and incorporate adult learning principles;
  • Center the experiences of marginalized groups and how to provide more inclusive services;
  • Align with the identified topics

Submissions that advertise a product, service for profit, book or other effort meant to make money during your presentation will not be considered.

Important dates:

  • *Deadline Extended!* Proposals are due to DCADV via https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RETREAT22 by Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.
  • Proposals will be reviewed by the Retreat Planning Advisory Committee in mid-late January 2022.  Presenters will be notified in early February 2022.
  • If selected, presenters will participate in 1-2 planning calls with DCADV Training Staff to review training content and the presentation platform within 4 weeks of their scheduled webinar.
