Description

Join us on September 12th, 2019, at the Morgan Hill Event Center in Hermon, for Part 2 (Modules 3 & 4) of our 12-hour Mental Health Curriculum, presented by the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence. Please read this event description completely, and be mindful of both the location and the date before registering, as we have multiple training registration pages currently open.


About the Curriculum:

This 12-hour curriculum was developed collaboratively by the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence and partners in the mental health field in order to meet the 2020 domestic violence training requirements for Psychologists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors (see L.D. 1238, 126th Legis. 2013). The four (three-hour) modules include information that will help mental health professionals be prepared to work with people who have experienced and perpetrated domestic abuse and violence.

On September 12th, at the Morgan Hill Event Center in Hermon, we will cover PART 2 - Modules 3 & 4 of four modules:

About the Presenters:

Regina Rooney is the Education & Communications Director for the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence, where she has worked to bring prevention and awareness strategies to stakeholders throughout Maine since 2014. Her work includes collaborating with and providing training for employers, health care workers, educators, advocates and the general community, with a focus on changing the social conditions that allow abuse to go unchecked and perpetrators to remain invisible. She holds a Master of Arts in English with a concentration in Women's Studies from the University of Maine, and her professional background includes work in teaching, resource development and nonprofit community outreach. She came to the domestic violence movement in 2008, when she began volunteering on the helpline at her local domestic violence resource center. Her pronouns are she/her/hers.

Samaa Abduraquib joined the staff at the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence in January of 2016. She was excited to return to domestic violence work, having spent several years (in the early 2000s) doing direct shelter work in Columbus, Ohio. Prior to joining the staff at MCEDV, Samaa was a faculty member at Bowdoin College and an abortion rights organizer with the ACLU-Maine. She earned her PhD in English and Gender & Women’s Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2010. In her role at MCEDV, Samaa provides support and technical assistance for domestic violence advocates and others around issues of trafficking, high risk response strategies, and responding to non-fatal strangulation. She also engages in statewide work around inclusivity for LGBTQ+ survivors, New Mainers, and victims who use languages other than English. In 2017, she began coordinating a collaborative initiative around the intersections of economic abuse and domestic violence. Her pronouns are she/her/hers.
