Steve and Dorthy Halley, from the Family Peace Initiative in Topeka, Kansas, will facilitate a two-day experiential workshop to expand the batterers intervention practitioner's skill in the art of facilitation. With an emphasis on the "River of Cruelty" model of trauma informed care, this training challenges the practitioner to move beyond a specific curriculum and embrace those skills that are critical for creating positive change in those who batter. 14 CJAD Approved Hours of CEUs will be provided at this training.
The facilitation style created by the Family Peace Initiative (FPI) utilizes a leadership approach which will be practiced in this training. It has been shown to be highly effective at quickly engaging involuntary clients. Please note that the training content builds throughout the two-day session and participation in both days is essential to receive the most benefit for all involved.
Through a highly experiential process, participant will learn: 1. The application of trauma-informed care in batterer intervention 2. Accountability without shame 3. Working with, and around defense systems 4. The value and risks of leading by example 5. The different batterer motive types and related risk factors, and effective response.
Because of the intimate nature of this training, the registration will be capped at 30 participants.
