Beyond Labels Training Series: Working with Survivors with Mental-Health Related Needs

January 13, 2022 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Virtual Event
Nevada Coalition to END Domestic and Sexual Violence (NVEDSV)

Beyond Labels is a three-part series based on the wisdom of survivors, national crisis services practitioners, trauma recovery experts and domestic violence and sexual assault professionals. Originally designed for domestic and sexual assault agencies it provides guidance for working with abuse survivors who engage in substance use or those experiencing mental illness.

Exploring the intersections between domestic and sexual violence, mental illness and substance use, Beyond Labels offers insight for not only domestic or sexual violence agency staff seeking to improve their response to survivors, but for any practitioner working with victims and survivors who may have additional needs. Beyond Labels also provides practical application of their concepts to client settings including shelter or group living.

*** CEU hours will be available with completion of all three trainings ***

Facilitators: Michelle Schwartz and Heidi Lersch with SAFE Alliance
