About
TCFV is thrilled to invite you to 2019's Region 6 Meeting. Join us and fellow advocates, program administrators, and community members from all over south Texas for a full day of training on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 in Jacksonville, Texas.

 

This annual meeting is a change to learn, generate creative ideas for work in your community, and build relationships with colleagues in the field.

 

TOPIC ONE: Health and Domestic Violence:  Intersections and Interventions

The intersection of health and domestic violence is crucial and multifaceted. Experiencing domestic violence negatively impacts most health outcomes. This training will explore the various impacts domestic violence has on health and the opportunities health workers and advocates have to intervene. Health professionals can have a major influence on someone who is experiencing violence and their ability to seek help and exit the abusive situation. Partnerships between the domestic violence advocacy and healthcare fields can be some of the best opportunities to share knowledge and skills that have the potential to save lives.

 

Presenter
Details on William West, the Prevention Coordinator at TCFV and your amazing presenter are coming soon!

 

TOPIC TWO: Empowerment Based Advocacy & Trauma Informed Care Skill Development

This training focuses on learning empowerment based advocacy practices and trauma informed care as well as how to craft tailored safety plans for survivors of domestic violence. Throughout this training participants will learn and implement skills through mini-lectures, activities, and exercises. It is best for an advocate focused audience.

 

Presenter
Details about April Jimerson and Kristen Thomas of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, your amazing trainers, are coming soon!
