A two-part webinar series on what domestic violence advocates and programs should know about changes to immigration policy and how it affects the people you work with.
This is a self-study course for law enforcement to better understand how to work with domestic violence victim service providers and provide an orientation to the ideas covered in the Confidentiality Quick Guide for Law Enforcement (available for download from course). A certificate of completion will be available for download when you complete all sections.

The Core Advocacy Training is a 40-hour initial skills and knowledge training for advocates of domestic violence victims/survivors in New Mexico, funded by the Children Youth and Families Department. It is designed for new advocates; however, manager and board members of advocacy organizations are welcome to attend (space allowing).  The online portion of the training is approximately 24 hours, followed by 3 days of an in-person intensive training, which is experiential.  Please visit www.nmcadv.org for a calendar of in-person training.

This is the online companion to the in person course with Lisa Larance, to be held May 3 & 4, 2017.  This event will provide an overview of the complexities of understanding and addressing women’s use of force.  Particular attention paid to intervening in the lives of women who have resorted to using force against their intimate heterosexual partners.  Training participants will gain a deeper understanding of how the motivation, intent, and impact of women’s use of force is often distinctly different from that of men who batter their female partners. 

This series of webinars is an introduction to the Helping Explore Accountable Lifestyles (HEAL) curriculum, which was developed by Jeffrie Cape of Charron Services, in partnership with David Garvin and the staff at the ADA Program. HEAL is a self-paced, 52-session batterer intervention program for men.  These webinars give an overview of the HEAL program design - Acknowledgement, Cornerstones, Challenge, and Sankofa.  The intention of these webinars is to serve as an introduction and compliment an in-person training by David & Jeffrie, provided by the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence on a regular basis since 2012.

This course is for users of the Osnium case management system, used widely in NM Domestic Violence programs.  It does not come with a completion certificate.

Confidentiality is arguably one of the most important, yet problematic aspects of domestic violence work. As advocates and others attempt to protect victim safety, effective relationships between community partners are often challenged. As information is rapidly becoming digitized, we are struggling to keep up with the dangers and difficulties the technologically-based world presents to victims. The foundation of successful coordination is clarity on the issue of confidentiality in domestic violence cases, and emphasizing how we should (and shouldn't) be using new technology to protect safety. This course is a series of recordings from "Confidentiality in the Digital Age", a workshop presented by Cindy Southworth of NNEDV, and Detective Deidre Fishel from the State College Police Department (PA).
