Domestic Violence Workshops

November 9, 2019
3 CEU’s for Licensed Counselors, Social Workers, ICDVP & PAIP

This workshop/course is for lay people, professionals, and church leadership

FOCUS Ministries offers half day faith based DV workshops/courses. The workshops/courses are designed to provide an in-depth understanding on various topics associated with domestic violence, abusive relationships, and faith. This education aids individuals to make informed decisions and appropriate responses plus equips people helpers, church leadership, and counselors. Each three hour workshop offers 3 CEU’s for licensed counselors and social workers.

Women who are entangled in abusive relationships find it difficult to determine how to respond and identify their options. They are so focused on trying to make the relationship work that they deny the damage the relationship is causing. Over time, women will experience a breaking point in which they decide to leave. Although clothed in fear, women step into the unknown not prepared for what can happen next.
