Connecting Intimate Partner Violence with Other Social Justice Movements: Working Toward Peace and Safety for All – November 2017

November 17, 2017

1:45 pm – 3:15 pm

Workshop at GCFV Annual Conference –  1:45 pm – 3:15 pm

The people we serve live complex lives. While our primary goal may be creating safety for someone being abused or holding someone accountable for being abusive, they may struggle to fully utilize our programs or reach their goals due other factors in their lives. These factors, such as poverty, homelessness, healthcare issues, and discrimination, are intertwined in our work with families experiencing violence. This workshop will explore the opportunities that could emerge by connecting the movement to end violence against women to other social change movements. Through large and small group discussion, we’ll explore challenges we face creating cross-movement collaborations and provide strategies for forming meaningful connection and partnerships with groups who share common values and goals with the domestic violence movement.

Confronting Collusion: Centering Safety in Family Violence Intervention Programs – November 2017

In this training, participants will define collusion and describe group dynamics that confront collusive behavior, describe components of a classroom culture that supports men’s accountability and honest participation, and explore the importance of partnering with agencies serving women to increase accountability for men and build safer communities for women and girls.

Registration: Seating is limited. Priority will be given to approved FVIP facilitators in Georgia and FVIP facilitators in training in Georgia. Registration will not be complete until we receive a check from you in the correct amount owed ($25 for Georgia facilitators and facilitators in training, $50 for all others).
