SAVE's 40-hour Domestic Violence Counselor Training
Submitted By Erin Daly
Three times a year, SAVE offers a 40-hour Domestic Violence Counselor Training. The training meets state guidelines, and completion of the training certifies you in the state of California as a Domestic Violence Counselor.
"This training is great! I have learned so much about domestic violence. Coming from a 'why doesn't she leave' mentality, I now consider all the different factors that affect a victim's decision-making," said a SAVE volunteer.
Why take the training?
* To work with those affected by domestic violence as a SAVE direct service volunteer.
* To volunteer with another domestic violence organization within California.
* To enhance your ability to work with survivors in your current or future professional capacity.
The next training dates are as follows: May 31, June 7, 14, 21, 28, July 5, and 12. Please note that make-ups will not be available for any missed sessions. Attendance at all sessions is required for certification.
