Community Training Programs

Abuse occurs in all types of relationships and among people with varying backgrounds of age, race, religion, financial status, sexual orientation and education. Fostering collaborations in the community allows for education about family violence, on how to recognize signs, how to respond appropriately and how to refer to community resources that can assist.

Education and prevention are important steps to help break the cycle of family violence in the community. Various topics and programs are available and can be customized for schools, colleges/universities, faith-based organizations, healthcare systems, employers, legal systems, service providers and other audiences. 

In 2017, the Training and Advocacy Department (TAD) became certified in trauma-responsive care through the Tristate Trauma Network. One of the key concepts of trauma-responsive care is resilience, the ability to cope with adversity and adapt to changes. Our new hybrid training combines a documentary screening with in-person training to help address trauma in our communities and assist individuals with resilience-building in their lives.

Another new addition is technology-based education, called eLearning, which can be customized to meet the needs of our communities. The eLearning platform helps TCFSH reach more people, engage learners in different types of educational activities and access retention of information.
