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, directors, managers and board members of all service and advocacy organizations are welcome to attend (space allowing). The online portion of the training is approximately 12 hours, to complete the full training you must also attend 3 days of an in-person experiential training, and a 1-day follow up practice workshop. Please visit www.nmcadv.org for a calendar of in-person training.

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 Jeffrie Cape, provided by the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence on a regular basis since 2012.

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).
