What should or shouldn’t I do to help a victim of domestic or sexual abuse?
Better understand the barriers and long-term effects victims of domestic and sexual abuse face. Get unique insight to how an abuser uses power and control to manipulate their victims, and oftentimes, the children and others in the family. This training will empower you to confidently do more to help a victim of these crimes. After training completion, you are qualified to comfort and listen to someone by answering the crisis line, to transport a victim to safety, to respond to a crisis call, and to be a short-term safe home for a victim and their children. You are welcome to this training whether you are interested in volunteering afterward or not. 30 Hour Crime Victim Counseling Training]]>
