Equipping Professionals with Essential Skills
Alexandra House offers a wide variety of trainings tailored for various professional groups. We charge a $150 flat fee for our professional trainings; however we will work with any agency or business unable to pay but with a desire to build their capacity to respond to and prevent domestic and sexual violence. Our staff will work with you to craft a training that meets your group’s specific goals and time frame.
Law enforcement, legal professionals, health care providers and social service workers are on the front line when it comes to recognizing and responding to domestic abuse. Our trainings provide critical knowledge on how to use your professional role to help victims of violence overcome many of the barriers they face when trying to be safe and/or escape an abusive relationship. Participating groups can become part of a coordinated community response to addressing and eliminating domestic violence.
Salons, banks, gyms, restaurants and many other places of business can take a stand and help create an environment in which domestic violence is no longer tolerated. Learn about how domestic violence impacts your clientele and how your business can get involved, taking simple steps to contribute to a violence-free community.
Alexandra House is a CUT IT OUT® Trainer. CUT IT OUT® trainers are domestic violence professionals who visit schools, salons and other approved locations to conduct one-hour seminars. These seminars provide domestic violence information and how to respond to someone who may be a victim of abuse.
Clergy and Lay Leaders
Many people rely on the support of their faith community, facing challenging life circumstances. Faith leaders must understand the dynamics of domestic violence and be prepared to support families dealing with abuse while holding the safety of the victims/survivors and their children as sacred.
Corporate or Workplace Setting
Domestic and sexual violence does not cease to impact people once they enter their place of employment. Employers, supervisors, and HR personnel can support their workers by becoming trained to respond to domestic abuse, creating policies that support victims and hold perpetrators accountable, and providing learning and awareness opportunities for all employees. Alexandra House believes engaging with local businesses is critical to creating safe communities and is available to train and provide support.
