I will be present at all sessions unless illness or emergency should arise, in which case I will notify the facilitator as soon as possible and make up the hours at the next scheduled training. The cost of making up sessions in future trainings is $25 per topic hour.
  2. I understand that the topic of domestic violence can elicit strong and sometimes unexpected emotions, and may affect each individual differently. Therefore, I agree to do my part in creating a safe, non-judgmental environment in which each person (with backgrounds, experiences, beliefs, and values that may differ from mine) may participate in his or her own exploration and education about issues related to domestic violence.
  3. I understand that returning this application does not guarantee me a spot in the training. It is subject to availability, on a first-come first-served basis.
