Workshop Announcement: IT'S COMPLICATED: Intersections Between Substance Use & Domestic Violence

Workshop Announcement!

Webinars are cost-effective and informative.  However, there are advantages to having human contact, interaction, and the ability to share ideas and information - in-person!  Indigenous Women's Justice Institute and Brenda Hill Consulting look forward to sharing information, experiences, and perspectives as we move forward, together, in the work to end violence in our families and tribal communities. 


Intersections Between Substance Use & Domestic Violence

Many Native people, young and old, have survived a lifetime of violence that has profoundly impacted their lives in many ways.  This workshop will provide participants with information about the history and effects of alcohol and other drugs, addiction treatment practices, the dynamics and impact of trauma, and how a trauma-informed response facilitates the healing process for victims/survivors.  This highly interactive workshop will give attendees the opportunity to participate in trauma-informed and culturally based activities that can be used in virtually any setting.

Who Should Attend?  This workshop is appropriate for advocates, law enforcement, court personnel, housing, social services, medical personnel and community members.  Any person working in a helping profession, is living with or has lived with addiction and violence or witnessed violence will benefit from this workshop.
