PUBLIC TRAININGS The Intersection of Domestic Violence and Trafficking

Technology Safety: Exploring Technology in the Context of Domestic Violence

Engaging and Supporting Parents Affected by Domestic Violence

Although domestic violence and human trafficking are distinct and different forms of victimizations, there are similarities and intersections between these types of violence. Both batterers and traffickers use power and control to dominate their victims, and the range of tactics used by traffickers closely resembles that of domestic violence perpetrators. This training will examine the intersection of domestic violence as it relates to trafficked individuals.

Technology has a major impact on survivors of abuse. It can be used by a victim to access help, to strategically maintain safety and privacy, and to remain connected to family and friends. Yet, technology, in its various forms, is also misused by abusers and perpetrators in crimes of domestic violence and stalking.

Parenting in the context of domestic violence varies for each family, but we know that abusive partners often undermine a victim’s parenting role. At the same time, we know that parents experiencing violence often find ways to protect their children and themselves from graver harm or abuse. This training will provide strength-based recommendations for supporting nonoffending parents as they work towards enhancing the relationships they have with their children. This training will offer guiding principles for strengthening engagement with parents and creating opportunities for opening up dialogues on sensitive or difficult topics.

CAMPUS TRAININGS Preventing and Responding to Intimate Partner Violence on Campus This training is an overview on intimate partner violence and stalking in relation to college campuses. This training is designed for college and university personnel including but not limited to Title IX Coordinators, Campus Resource Team members, Judicial Hearing Boards, counseling and health services, student affairs, law enforcement, public safety and residential life. Participants will receive information on the definitions, warning signs and progression of intimate partner violence and stalking, how intimate partner violence and/or stalking impacts victims, whether students or employees, best practices for responding to a victim of intimate partner violence or stalking including safety planning, and on and off campus resources for a victim of intimate partner violence or stalking. Presenter: Linda Blozie, CCADV

Bringing in the Bystander Bringing in the Bystander is a sexual violence and intimate partner violence prevention program aimed at increasing, among potential bystanders and third-person witnesses, prosocial attitudes and behaviors toward and awareness of risky behaviors and precursors to sexual and intimate partner victimization. This training will teach participants to facilitate a ninety minute program on your campus which includes basic information about sexual and intimate partner violence, discussions of how campus community members can play important prevention roles as bystanders, active learning exercises, and a “bystander plan”. Presenter: Linda Blozie, CCADV This training is only available to CSCU college and university campus personnel.

The Intersection of Stalking, Intimate Partner Violence and Technology on Campus While technology itself is not abusive or violent, people who engage in intimate partner violence and stalking often employ technology as a way to pinpoint their partner’s whereabouts and maintain control in the relationship. Such harassment can have significant adverse effects on a student’s academic performance as well as on his or her physical and mental health. Whether a particular case impedes a student’s educational opportunities or sparks concern about potential violence, technological stalking is a threat that calls for attention and clear institutional resources dedicated to practical support for victims. Presenter: Linda Blozie, CCADV This training is only available to CSCU college and university campus personnel.

LAW ENFORCEMENT Stalking and Strangulation: Legal Update Stalking and strangulation are two of the most potentially lethal forms of intimate partner abuse. Abusers often use non-fatal strangulation and stalking as tactics to not only terrorize but control their partners. Research into domestic violence fatalities shows that an abuser’s attempt to strangle or stalk their partner victim can be a dramatic predictor of future lethality in intimate partner violence cases This training will review the laws currently in place to address the crimes of stalking and strangulation as well as the most recent legislative updates that will be in place as of October 1, 2017. Presenter: Daniel Cargill, CCADV This training is only available to law enforcement personnel and member program staff.

Lethality Assessment Program: Train the Trainer The Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) is an easy and effective way for law enforcement to 1) identify victims of domestic violence who are at risk of being seriously injured or killed by their intimate partners and 2) immediately connect them to the domestic violence service provider in their area. The goal of the LAP is to prevent domestic violence homicides, serious injury and re-assault by encouraging victims to use the support services of their local domestic violence agency. At this training, you will learn about the LAP program, the lethality screening tool, how to conduct a lethality screen for first responders, how to initiate the protocol for high danger screens and best practices for the lethality assessment program.
