Domestic Violence Core Training For Probation Officers – Sacramento

Training

Probation Officers who supervise individuals convicted of domestic violence offenses encounter issues that are not common in other types of supervision caseloads. For example, these Probation Officers interact more with victims, work directly with Batterer Intervention Programs, and need to understand the unique dynamics of interpersonal relationship violence. This two-day (16 hour) intensive, highly interactive, victim-centered trauma-informed core training is specifically designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of Probation Officers responsible for the supervision of individuals convicted of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Topics include: understanding victim and offender profiles and behavior; victim-blaming; history of trauma and abuse; power and control issues; legal role and authority of probation; restraining orders; domestic violence courts; supervision techniques, including awareness about LGBTQ issues; risk assessments; investigation issues; the expectations and requirements of Batterer Intervention Programs; evidence-based interventions and fidelity; data collection; and secondary trauma and toxic stress.

Target Audience: This course is designed for Probation Officers responsible for the supervision of individuals convicted of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and PC290 cases.
