NYSCADV Survivor’s Financial Empowerment Training Series Part 1: Understanding economic abuse, safety planning, divorce, and child support

Event Date
Thursday, February 04, 2021, 11:00AM

The New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NYSCADV) presents a series of four webinars based on the “The Allstate Moving Ahead Curriculum” for financial empowerment, created by the Allstate Foundation and NNEDV.

Economic abuse is a prevalent form of domestic violence. Even before the current public health crisis, lack of financial independence prevented 94-99% of survivors from being able to leave their abuser (NRCDV). In the short-term, economic abuse can hinder a survivors’ ability to plan for and achieve safety away from the abuser. In the long-term, economic abuse can carry devastating consequences, including ruined credit, employment issues, homelessness, and legal issues, which can adversely affect a survivors’ ability to achieve financial stability and independence.

Attendees participating in this webinar series will:

  • Have an increased ability to apply trauma-informed, survivor-centered services to survivors of economic abuse;
  • Gain valuable tools necessary to assist survivors in financial safety planning and economic empowerment practices; and
  • Be introduced to the Moving Ahead curriculum and its modules.
