Description

Join us as we bring together constituents from Region 5 & 6 for our annual membership meeting. This annual meeting is a time for us to network and spend the day increasing our skills as TCFV provides a full date of training on vital issues. We will provide an interactive workshop on the following:

Topics
Creating Safe Spaces: Mental Health & Trauma
Research has indicated that there is a strong link between trauma and the mental health and well-being of survivors of domestic violence. Additionally, survivors with ongoing mental health issues can be re-victimized as a result of their status and may need specific supports while working with advocates in a family violence program. This session will explore the link between trauma and domestic violence as well as provide participants with tools for creating safer spaces that enhance the advocacy relationship.

Economic Options for Survivors
This training details the various economic resources and protections available to survivors of family violence, sexual assault and stalking. In addition, it will include information on public benefits, unemployment compensation, housing remedies, utility waivers and child support. The training also explores various creative ways for survivors to gain more financial stability such as economic education and tax returns. 


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