DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CLERGY WORKSHOPS

Domestic violence is an ongoing epidemic in our culture and in our faith communities. Religious leaders are often turned to by Victims of domestic violence as the first resource for understanding and help. This is both good and bad news. On the one hand, it is good in the sense that victims intuitively feel they will be well received, believed and understood in turning to their clergy. On the other hand, it is bad because most clergy are inadequately trained and qualified to respond in a helpful manner. In fact they often unintentionally do more harm than good. But that does not have to be the case. Training is available.

A day long training event is being offered at one of four different locations around the greater Sacramento area. Each event is from 9:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. Lunch is included. Choose your date and reserve your spot. Please see our flyer for the goals of the training.

June 30 – July 28 – August 25 – September 15th.
