Region 9 (Central Texas) Membership Meeting

04/28/2017 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM CST


  • Free


Bastrop, TX


Join us as we bring together constituents from Region 9 for our annual membership meeting. This annual meeting is the time for us to network and spend the day increasing our skills as TCFV provides a full day of training on vital issues. We will provide an interactive workshop on the following: 

Creating Safer Spaces: Using Motivational Interviewing to Enhance Advocacy
Motivational Interviewing (MI), an empathic approach to conversations around change, supports survivors to make individual choices about their families and goals by focusing on self-efficacy and internal motivators while maintaining an environment of understanding focused on goals of the survivor’s choosing. This training session will offer an overview of MI as well as hands-on experience employing this advocacy tool. With recent shifts in federal regulations to require voluntary services, MI can also be a great tool to assist in meeting these new requirements and creating positive discussions about available services!

Moving the Wheel: Enhancing Services and Access to LGBQ/T Communities
From intake to survivor complaints this workshop will allow you to keep Moving the Wheel towards enhanced access for LGBQ/T survivors. This session will offer advocacy tools to help you and your agency continue the work towards supporting LGBQ/T survivors in a meaningful and effective manner through interactive activities, lively group discussion, and role-playing. Additionally, the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) requires yearly training on this topic so this is a great way to meet that requirement while making positive change towards enhanced access in your community!

The regional memebership meeting is made possible through the OVW Grant and is offered free of charge to attendees.
