AUDIENCE: KCSDV member program advocates working within a domestic and/or sexual violence advocacy program serving children, youth, and non-abusive parents/caregivers.
This training will provide advocates the strategies and skills to recognize and implement scholarly and research informed methods of youth mentoring practices that can be converted to child-parent advocacy and child-youth advocacy within domestic violence advocacy settings. During this skills based training advocates will identify and implement strategies to foster resilience in children and youth who have experienced domestic violence, teen dating violence, and co-occurring bullying, while strengthening the bond with the non-abusive parent/caregiver. Advocates will practice applying skills and techniques of intervention that honor the non-abusive parent and promote child-parent relationships while engaging in an anti-oppression reflective practice. Additionally, self-care strategies for advocates, children/youth, and non-abusive parents will be provided and practiced. This training will be presented by the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence Children and Youth Team and Futures Without Violence. Each advocate will be provided a copy of the newly enhanced Working with Survivors of Domestic Violence and Their Children: A Resource Guide for Domestic Violence Advocacy Programs in Kansas.
As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
