WHAT DO FAITH LEADERS AND CONGREGATIONS
NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?  
  

IF IN DOUBT, WHY NOT PLAN A 2, 4, OR 8 HOUR
SEMINAR TO HELP YOU RESPOND TO THIS ISSUE OR
PROBLEM WHEN IT ARISES AMONG YOUR
CONGREGANTS OR IN YOUR COMMUNITY...

 
Domestic violence destructively impacts our communities,
traumatizing victims and  children, forcing perpetrators or
batterers into a no-win encounter with the criminal Justice
system, jeopardizing the stability of families and communities
from one  generation to the next. Traditional social service
programs  need the support and collaboration of the faith
community for victim assistance or domestic violence prevention.
 
Therefore, a model designed with the culture and traditions of
the faith community in mind has been developed to be used in
conjunction with the unique resources of the church. 
 
Creating a Safe Environment (CASE) Partnership is a faith and
community based collaborative approach to domestic violence
prevention and intervention.  We are both people of faith and
domestic violence advocates working to create a culture of peace
in our families and communities.  We are Dominguez United
Methodist Church and Interval House Domestic violence
Crisis Shelters.

THE CASE SEMINARS have been designed to assist you and your
church leadership to acquire sufficient skills and strategies to
confront family violence in your congregation and stop the
destructive pattern of violence before intimate and family
relationships are ruined and lives are destroyed.  We are also able
to provide seminars appropriate for youth groups and non-English
speaking groups.  Included in seminars of 8 hours or more is a
Handbook on "Faith in Violence Free Families."
 
If your church or spiritual group is located in our target areas of
Los Angeles and Orange counties, our services are available on a
reasonably priced, sliding fee schedule starting at $75.00 per
seminar.  Slightly higher fees are charged to cover travel to other
areas.
 
The training consists of interactive workshops and presentations
that provide individuals with a fundamental understanding of
issues related to domestic violence including, but not limited to:

Domestic Violence History
Impact of Domestic Violence on Children
Teen Dating Violence
Sexual Assault
Multi-Cultural Considerations
Laws and Legislation
Domestic Violence and Substance Abuse
Domestic Violence and the LGBT Community
Religious Perspective on Violence
Pastoral Care and Counseling--optional
Child Abuse Identification
Engaging Men as allies Against Domestic Violence (Ujima Project)
Batterers Treatment


All trainers and speakers are experts in the Domestic Violence
field and currently provide lectures, presentations, seminars
and trainings in their particular areas to help you gain the skills
and understanding necessary to work with victims of Domestic
Violence.  This comprehensive training fulfills the requirements
of the 40-Hour  Domestic Violence Certification Training. 
It is not only an essential  part of professional development
for those who work in the field but  also a mandate of the
State of California (Evidence Code Section 1037.1 and
Penal Code Section 1203.037).

The CASE Partnership Domestic Violence Training is unlike
any other training on the subject as a result of our partnership
with Interval House  Crisis Shelters.  Interval House gives us the
capacity to utilize multi-cultural trainers fluent in foreign
languages and traditions with firsthand knowledge of 70 languages
and dialects.  Our speakers will inspire you, and the thought
provoking sessions will motivate you in your providing appropriate
care and service.  This unique training is for professionals,
volunteers, and anyone who wishes to work with victims of domestic
violence.
