2014 IPVA (Intimate Partner Violence Advocate) Certification Series
IPVA is one of APFC's initiatives that has been operating since 2009; this five-part program is valuable to anyone who provides advocacy and support to families through social services, the schools, the healthcare system, or the criminal justice system. Even business leaders will find IPVA valuable as one in four women is a victim of domestic violence, so it is likely that a colleague or employee will need support.
You can register for all five classes or you can take classes individually if you have some background on the issue
IPVA attendees walk away with practical tools and information on how to safely and effectively approach, support, and empower victims. Since inception, 100% of IPVA attendees reported that they'd recommend the series to colleagues (per confidential survey). See our Facebook page to read comments by former attendees (www.Facebook.com/APFCNJ).
