ICADV Peer Review Refresher Training
May 20, 2015  9am – 12 pm
Facilitated by Terri Noone
Domestic violence service providers who receive funding through ICJI who participate in the ICADV Peer Review process are required to have at least 2 staff members trained on the ICADV Peer Review Standards. The current iteration of the standards took effect in 2014, so most programs have those staff in place. However, for programs who may not meet that standard or those programs or staff who would like a quick refresher, ICADV is hosting a central refresher training. Any questions can be addressed to Caryn Burton at ICADV’s office.

When: May 20, 9am – 12pm
Where: INCAA, 1845 W 18th St, Indianapolis, IN

Emerging Issues in Serving Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence; ICADV Annual June Membership Training
June 8, 2015; 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
For the 2015 ICADV Membership Training, we are focusing on two emerging issues in survivor services; 1) creating and implementing an effective strangulation protocol and 2) providing effective services to male survivors of IPV. While they are very separate and distinct issues, both effectively addressing strangulation across disciplines and serving male survivors are rooted in knowledge and understanding of the deeper dynamics of IPV and of available systems and services.

We will split the day, focusing on creating strangulation response protocols in the morning and working with male survivors in the afternoon. The morning session on strangulation protocol will be facilitated by Linda Major, JD, of the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, and Barb Bachmeier, JD, MSN, of the IU Methodist Center of Hope. The afternoon session will be facilitated by ICADV training coordinator Caryn Burton and Beth Beams of the Center for Nonviolence. Questions can be directed to Caryn.

When: June 8, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Depending on your previous experience, you may choose one or all of the sessions. It is strongly encouraged that at least two members of the leadership team from your agency attend so knowledge gained is not lost if a one person leaves.All sessions will be hosted at the Indiana Community Action Association, 1845 W 18th St, Indianapolis, IN (across the lot from ICADV) in Conference Room A.

Overwhelmed; Over Stressed; Over the Counter Meds and the Harm They May Do
Facilitated by Dr Carla Gaff Clark
This workshop will focus heavily on a disorder that many say is the result of modern life, stress, exhaustion and depression. Chronic Stress Disorder has to do with our constantly being on the go, perhaps over-worked and not finding enough down time. Many folks then start feeling aches and pains as well as being more moody. What happens next, well, for many consumers, they mistakenly assume that OTC drugs can do no harm. But when improperly used, these medicines are lethal, killing hundreds of Americans and causing tens of thousands of hospitalizations every year according to federal data. To register for any session, please contact the individual listed as the contact person for the host agency. Any questions regarding the training location or specific agenda can be directed to that person. Any questions about the training in general, please feel free to contact Caryn.

• Know the difference between Chronic Stress and other types
• Know physical illnesses associated with Chronic Stress
