Principles of Primary Prevention
August 12, 2015| $45
Primary prevention programs are focused on reducing or eliminating the first-time perpetration of sexual violence and
intimate partner violence SV/IPV. This means figuring out what factors make some people more at-risk to perpetrate SV/IPV, and changing or interrupting those factors. This training delves into the key concepts underlying this innovative work, highlights promising practices from the field, and includes an overview of Virginia’s Guidelines for the Primary Prevention of Sexual Violence & Intimate Partner Violence used by sexual and domestic violence agencies throughout Virginia and across the country.
Basic Advocacy Trainings are designed for advocates working with people who have experienced/are experiencing sexual and/or domestic violence. While this series is designed for staff and volunteers of Sexual and Domestic Violence Agencies (SDVAs), the content is also helpful to allied professionals such as healthcare providers, therapists/counselors,
homeless services, faith communities, social workers, and more. The trainings help participants learn about and practice many of the basic skills necessary for effective advocacy.
Each Basic Advocacy Training focuses on a topical area.
Cost: The registration fee for all Basic Advocacy Trainings is $45, and includes lunch and materials. Discounts are available to Action Alliance members. All scheduled Basic Advocacy Trainings will be held in Richmond. Should you be interested in bringing a Basic Advocacy Training to your area, visit our website and submit a request.
