Participants attending this training will have the opportunity to step back and think about the families they work with and how domestic violence affects those they serve and the work they do within the context of supervised visitation. The training consists of mini lectures, interactive role-plays, and small and large group discussions. At the end of the training participants should have a better understanding of domestic violence, how to provide safer services to families experiencing domestic violence and how to develop a plan of action to take back to their communities to strengthen their already existing services.
