Domestic Violence 101 Workshops

YWCA’s Domestic Violence 101 Workshop is a 28 hour series that’s designed and facilitated by our domestic violence staff to help community professionals and members recognize the dynamics of violence, understand the complex impact of domestic violence on individuals, families and the community, and learn how and when to take steps towards intervention.

Upon completion of the domestic violence education, participants will receive a YWCA Certificate of Completion for those hours.

NOTE: we currently cannot offer CEUs.

The workshops series can also be offered to agencies and organizations on-site for a flat rate. Contact Marienelly Vazquez at mvazquez@ywcacm.org for more information.

**Please note that survivors of domestic violence are more than welcome to register for the series, however, it is not a service designed for survivors. ALL services for survivors are FREE. Call our 24 hour helpline at 508-755-9030 or visit www.ywcahelp.com for more information on our survivor services.
