2019 MCADSV Trainings

2019 MCADSV Statewide Trainings

Last year, MCADSV offered The Basics of Advocacy Series, Directors’ Academy and other statewide sessions. To be more responsive to our member’s needs, we will be making some changes in 2019. First, MCADSV will begin offering Foundations of Advocacy in March. This one-day training will include everything an advocate would need to know on their very first day. To reach as many new advocates as possible, this training will be offered once each month from March through November. It will be held both in our training center in Jefferson City and out in location across the state.

Next, The Basics of Advocacy Series will transition to Advocacy in Practice. These skills-based trainings will include Crisis Intervention, Hotline and Safety Planning; Legal Advocacy; and Prevention with additional trainings on Advocacy in Shelter; and Medical Advocacy. All except the Prevention training will be offered two times throughout the year. This series of trainings is open to all advocates-new and seasoned.

Then, because of the numerous requests for management training for both Directors and mid-level managers, our Directors’ Academy will transition to Leadership Courses. These courses will be offered for all levels of management. Familiar topics such as grant compliance and money management will be included, but we will also add trainings on HR compliance and Coaching/Building a team.

And finally, the Statewide Series will include additional training topics and national speakers that would be of interest to our members.

Please check the online calendar for information about events as they are scheduled. MCADSV also will make formal announcements by email and at regional meetings.

Trainings will take place at the MCADSV Training Center in Jefferson City unless otherwise noted.


2019 MCADSV Regional Meetings

Regional meetings are a benefit of MCADSV membership. They last about three hours and include a training component, reports on MCADSV activities from Coalition staff, and program updates from peers in your region. Members are welcome to attend any MCADSV regional meeting. 


MCADSV Training Pass

The Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence provides trainings that are an invaluable resource for individuals working with survivors of domestic and sexual violence. There are two Training Passes available: The One-Time Training Registration or The Annual Training Pass. The One-time Training Registration is useful if an individual is only interested in attending one training. The Annual Training Pass offers the opportunity to attend a calendar year’s worth of comprehensive training services and provides a way for community partners to take an active part in the movement to end rape and abuse.
