Region 5 Membership Meeting (South Central Texas)

08/23/2019 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM CST


  • Free


San Antonio, TX


Join us as we bring together constituents from Region 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:



Trauma Informed Supervision
Every day sexual assault and domestic violence advocates stand with survivors of intimate partner violence as they share their experiences of trauma, abuse, and strength. Supporting survivors on their journey can impact advocates and result in vicarious trauma, stress and compassion fatigue. This session will focus on how supervisors can create spaces to support advocate wellness and prevent the development of compassion fatigue.


Potluck and Prayers: Community Education with Faith Communities
Spirituality, faith, and religion can be a huge part of a survivor’s life, but faith communities might not be a huge part of your agency’s life. Join us in this training to explore how programs can build and strengthen community alliances with local faith communities. We’ll focus on a few best practices for tailoring education and outreach to your local faith communities. And we’ll also have an opportunity to discuss creative ways to overcome potential obstacles you face.
