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.

The full 28-hour series is offered at a flat rate of $325 (no CEU’s) or $400 (with CEU’s). For individuals, single sessions (no CEU) are $45, please contact us to select a session.

Upon completion of the domestic violence education, participants will receive a YWCA Certificate of Completion for those hours.  This program has been approved for 28 Social Work Continuing Education hours for relicensure, in accordance with 258 CMR, NASW-MA Chapter CE Approving Program, Authorization number 92110. 

**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.
