Stretch Break! Long Time Victim Advocate Refresher and Revitalizer 

Back by popular demand!

This day-long workshop is the same workshop we did last January at the Lacey Community Center. Once again, we will offer a special place for advocates who have been doing direct services advocacy for years now (3-30 years). If you have longed to hang out for a day and talk with experienced folks, this training is for you. Here's what we'll delve into:

  • rock solid core skills and the situations that knock us off base
  • liberatory practices and how to stay centered on your worst days
  • self-care way beyond the bubble bath
  • tough client feedback and how to ask better evaluation questions
  • pushing back on yourself and your agency when you are asked to do too much
  • advocacy in this age of increased awareness of and acts of racism and sexism

    Register today and let us know what your burning questions are!
