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 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.


NOTE: We now have a new online portion of the Core Advocacy Training.  This version is no longer available for new enrollments.  Current participants still completing and former participants will continue to have access to course materials. 

This course is approximately 24 hours, and users should have attended an in-person session previous to July 2017.
