Twice a year, Cornerstone hosts a 40-hour training series for staff, volunteers and partners to learn about the dynamics, scope and impact of domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking through a trauma-informed lens. Successful completion of the training includes sexual violence advocate certification.
The next training series will be hosted virtually June 14 – 17. Live classes over Zoom are facilitated by Cornerstone staff and community partners who are experts in trauma-informed advocacy, safety planning, confidentiality, mandated reporting, hospital advocacy and oppression, power and privilege. Participants also complete an additional series of on-demand, interactive training modules that cover a variety of topics including child abuse, human trafficking, labor trafficking, the criminal and civil justice system and culturally responsive advocacy with presentations by a variety of culturally-specific organizations.
