For workers who have training and work experience in providing counselling or support services to people who experience domestic violence and who are looking for additional insights and skills. Course Description: Where does a skilled domestic violence counsellor or support worker go to discuss advanced practice questions and gain more insight?

This 2-day course is an opportunity for those experienced in addressing domestic violence issues to explore some of the complex practice and theoretical challenges that arise from working with this important client group. The facilitator will provide input and hopes to create a safe environment for participants to raise and reflect on issues and challenging cases, as well as to share discoveries and strategies they have found effective.
