Domestic Violence Workshop

Domestic Violence 101 Workshops
for Professionals and Community Members

YWCA’s Domestic Violence 101 Workshop series is 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.

Workshops are held on Thursdays from 9:00am to 12:30pm virtually on Zoom.  Upon completion of the 28 hours of 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 Elizabeth Rhodes at 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 for more information on our survivor services.
