This 2-part training series offered in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence will provide an in-depth understanding of the impact that intimate partner violence (IPV) and trauma can have on your client, you, and the interactions between you and your client.


Part 1, Intimate Partner Violence 101, will cover various topics around Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) with a focus on immigrant populations. These topics will include the different forms that intimate partner violence can take, barriers to reporting abuse and accessing services, and best practices when working with survivors. The training will cover societal and systemic responses to abuse and resources available for immigrants experiencing abuse.


Part 2, Working with Immigrant Survivors of Trauma, will focus on the intersectionality between trauma, IPV and immigrant communities. The training will examine the neurobiology of trauma, common diagnoses, and risk factors for trauma. It will identify the common presentations in people who have experienced trauma and trauma-informed engagement techniques. It will also discuss common signs and effects of secondary trauma. (Note: Intimate Partner Violence 101 is a prerequisite.)


Please note that participants are expected to attend BOTH sessions. 


The training will be led by experienced trainers from the NYC Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence
