2020 MCADSV Trainings

MCADSV Trainings are open to employees, volunteers and board members of MCADSV member programs, MCADSV professional members, and non-members. Training is free as a benefit of membership of MCADSV and costs $45 per day for non-members. Annual training passes are also available.

2020 MCADSV Statewide Trainings

MCADSV will begin offering Foundations of Advocacy  again 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 October. It will be held both in our training center in Jefferson City and out in locations across the state.

Advocacy in Practice  will begin again in April and includes skill based sessions on  Crisis Intervention, Hotline and Safety Planning; Confidentiality, Safety and Orders of Protection; Advocacy in Shelter; Medical  Advocacy; and Preventing Gender Based Violence.  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.

MCADSV will also continue to offer additional training topics and national speakers that would be of interest to our members. In addition to Leadership courses offered for all levels of management, Directors' Academy will return in 2020!

2020 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. 

 

Directors' Academy

(more info to come)

Directors’ Academy, a two-year program focused on executive directors who have been in their position five years or less.. By attending the Academy, you have the opportunity to engage with your peers, develop skills and gain the tools you need to move your organization forward and succeed in your job. We know there is value in ongoing learning and having a community of peers. Directors’ Academy offers both. 

 

Training Plan Resource Recommendations

MCADSV acts on its belief in the value of education. We are committed to providing quality training content and materials for member organizations and advocates to support quality services for victims of domestic and sexual violence. MCADSV’s service standards require advocates and volunteers with domestic violence programs or with rape crisis centers to receive 40 hours of training, and 48 hours of training for those with programs providing both domestic and sexual violence services. 


Those who are planning trainings and developing curricula can supplement their educational content with MCADSV videos, webcasts, or online trainings. 

 

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.
