The high rates of victimization in tribal communities means it is likely that you are working with a person who has or is experiencing domestic violence, either as a victim or perpetrator. Domestic violence can present a threat at the work site and impact our ability to work and/or access services.
This workshop is an opportunity to learn why and how domestic violence happens and how it affects us. Emphasis will be on exploring the intersections between the field you work in and potential responses, as well as on policies and strategies addressing the impact of violence and victimization on an individual's ability to work, feel safe, and access services. Please join the Indigenous Women's Justice Institute and Brenda Hill Consulting for this trauma-informed, culturally-based workshop!
