Training Team
Ohio Domestic Violence Network 

Please join us for this virtual, interactive training

This training will explore how service providers can center the strengths of youth and adult survivors, while also validating their lived experiences of trauma and adversity. PACES (Positive and Adverse Childhood Experiences) research has guided programs and communities to change their service design for better outcomes by recognizing the whole journey of an individual. Consequently, participants in this training will embark on a discussion of how incorporating the newer research findings of PACES can influence domestic violence program design. Participants will examine how to create necessary changes that enhance interactions with survivors through the creation of policies and procedures, staff training, and resources and referrals.
