Please plan accordingly as THIS REGISTRATION WILL BE FOR THE SERVING YOUTH & TECH SAFETY MODULE ONLY.
This training module is part of the Coalitions Fundamentals of Advocacy Training Institute and counts toward the 40 hours of fundamental training required of all direct-service staff employed within Nebraska’s network of SV/DV victim service programs. It is open to staff and volunteers from network programs and tribal sv/dv programs.
The first half of this module will focus on working with children/youth and families who have been impacted by domestic violence. We will explore an advocates’ role in working with children and youth as secondary victims; discuss how trauma presents in children and youth; and explore ways to support and empower parents and strengthen parent-child relationships.
The second half of this module will focus on technology-facilitated abuse and tech safety. We will discuss ways in which individuals may use technology to harass, stalk, or intimidate and identify strategies survivors can use to increase their safety. We will also discuss ways advocates can effectively support survivors who are experiencing technology-facilitated abuse and best practices for using technology to improve services.
