Event Details

   The Domestic Violence Collaborative is hosting their Annual Domestic Violence Training Seminar. This seminar is opened to Law Enforcement Officials, Prosecutors, Judges, Social Workers, Victim Advocates, Domestic Violence Advocates, Probation Officers, First Responders, Medical Personnel, Counselors and Attorneys. We are offering a Certificate of Participation along with CLE’s for Attorney’s and CEU’s for Counselor’s, Social Workers, and Medical/EMS staff (pending approval). Below is a brief description and hourly agenda. We look forward to seeing you!


Dr. Erin N. Reeves, President of Nextions

This training will cover the basic principles of unconscious bias and explore the ways in which we think, work, and lead across differences. Specifically, the training will bring together substantive research and findings to provide participants with the ability to become more aware of their own assumptions, behaviors and impact, especially when interacting with people who they (consciously and unconsciously) see as different from themselves. Participants will learn actionable strategies to interrupt biases in team work, communication, and decision making to create a more diverse and inclusive working partnership that supports all victims of domestic violence.

Kimberly Williams, Survivor

Kimberly is a survivor of physical, sexual and mental abuse. She now shares her story with others in hopes to help others see that there is life after trauma. She will describe also, how she was able to work through and overcome her anger and fears throughout her life.

Jennifer Landhuis, M.S., Director of Stalking Prevention, Awareness, and Resource Center (SPARC)

 Left Hand, Meet Right Hand: Coordinating the Response in Stalking Cases

It is estimated that 7.5 million individuals experience stalking per year. Many of these crimes go undetected, unreported, or uncharged because victims and first responders fail to recognize the conduct for what it is or because criminal justice professionals may lack the specialized knowledge and tools required to secure the necessary evidence-particularly in cases where offenders use technology to stalk. Increased awareness, more effective interventions, and improved coordination between law enforcement, victim advocates, prosecutors, and other allied professionals will raise community consciousness, increase reporting, hold more offenders accountable, and keep victims and communities safe.
