Indigenous Women's Justice Institute Workshop "Domestic Violence Comes to Work: Dynamics, Impact and Response" November 12-15, 2018 at Rapid City, SD.
The high rates of victimization in tribal communities, means it is highly likely that you are working with a person who has or is experiencing domestic violence, either as a victim, perpetrator, or both. Sometimes this person is seeking services or a co-worker or ourselves. Domestic violence can present a threat at the work site, impact our ability to work and/or access services.
This workshop is an opportunity to understand why and how domestic violence happens and how it affects us. Emphasis will be on exploring the intersections between the field you work in and potential responses, policies and strategies addressing the impact of violence and victimization on an individual’s ability to get safe, work and/or access and maintain services. Please join us for this trauma-informed, culturally-based workshop!
Who Should Attend? Everyone welcomed! This workshop is appropriate for advocates, law enforcement, court personnel, housing and social services staff, medical personnel and community members.
*Please bring a copy of any policies your organization has that address domestic violence.
The Indigenous Women's Justice Institute, Brenda Hill Consulting and Heth Ducheneaux
look forward to sharing information, approaches and perspectives to support healing from violence
in our families and tribal communities.
