The training will provide a general overview for trainees to understand the trauma caused by domestic violence and how it impacts system involved youth outcomes. The training covers the cycles of violence and how to describe this to youth. During this training, participants will discuss and share resources for domestic violence related issues which could support survivors, perpetrators, and children witnessing domestic violence. The training will discuss how the cycle of violence has negative risk factors for children and how to hold these discussions when working with system-involved youth and families. Trainees will be able to develop a trauma-informed approach to supporting youth who are involved in a domestic violent relationship. The material will be delivered by PowerPoint presentation, short video clips, group discussion, breakout (small group) discussions and participant workbook (handout).
