Proper documentation is essential when working with survivors of domestic violence. This one and one-half day training assists advocates by providing a greater understanding of using trauma-informed principles in documentation. You will learn where, why, and when to document and identify the risks of documenting too little or too much and the risks unique to custody cases.

You will learn about best practices for informed releases of information and confidentiality provisions in VOCA, VAWA, and FVPSA. Other topics include managing external requests and protecting documentation when responding to subpoenas and file requests. Join ODVN trainers for this informative and engaging training featuring break-out sessions and role-plays.
