The Core Advocacy Training is a 40-hour fundamental skills and knowledge training for advocates of domestic violence victims/survivors in New Mexico, supported by the Children Youth and Families Department. It is designed for new advocates but open to all. The goals of the training are to leave participants with an understanding of: The history of the domestic violence movement and theories of violence in intimate relationships, including the disproportionate amount of violence met on women by men; The dynamics of domestic violence and tactics of abuse; Trauma in the lives of victims and their children, and how it impacts behavior and functioning; Secondary trauma and its effects in the lives of advocates; The legal context of domestic abuse, including state and federal statutes, protection orders, civil and criminal justice systems, and jurisdiction on tribal lands; An introduction to different cultural groups in New Mexico and the varying degrees of danger face by each; Challenges and resources for immigrant victims of abuse; The links between substance abuse and domestic violence; Specific challenges faced by members of the LGBTQ community; Child abuse and mandatory reporting; The role and ethical guidelines of advocacy; The importance of community partners and a coordinated response; and Skills in: Listening and connecting with clients; Using a trauma lens to view difficult behaviors; Crisis response, danger assessment, and safety planning in a variety of contexts; Welcoming all people, including people with disabilities, deaf and hard of hearing clients, and clients with limited English proficiency, Maintaining confidentiality and interacting with law enforcement; De-escalating conflict; Practicing cultural competency; Valuing and practicing self-care. Core Advocacy Training Structure: We have been working for the last month on revamping both the in-person content, self-study online training course, and will now be incorporating a follow up workshop to really embed knowledge and sharpen advocacy skills. In-Person Intensive (21 Hours) Participants will first attend the in-person intensive which will be three full days of knowledge building and experiential training. Online Training (12 hours) Participants will have two weeks to complete their online training. The online course has been condensed and focused down to 12-hours covering more in-depth topics and continuing to build all-around competency in domestic violence related knowledge.  (Access to online training will be provided to all registrants at a later date. The new online training course has not been finalized yet. Once it is open all registrants will be emailed instructions on how to log in and complete the online training portion.)  Follow-Up Workshop (2-3 weeks after initial session) Participants will  attend a mandatory follow-up workshop to complete their 40 hour training. This advanced workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to further develop the skills that they learned in the initial in-person intensive. The focus will be on teaching advocacy skills that promote engagement and self determination. The skill development portion will occur in a supportive environment with demonstrations and individualized feedback.
