We train courts and communities by developing domestic violence workshops that target your specific needs and provide concrete tools to improve daily practice.
The Center helps you train with a purpose by first identifying the specific needs of your community and the practices you want to see changed. We can also help devise an interactive training agenda to keep your audience engaged and link you to highly skilled local and national faculty. What's more, we’re able to provide many of these services for free.
Our training topic areas include:
- Domestic Violence Dynamics
- Child-related Relief
- Access to Justice
- Self-Represented Litigants
- Risk and Lethality Assessment

Domestic Violence Training for Court Staff
Oftentimes, court staff is the first point of contact for both survivors and abusive partners, illustrating the need for court-based training and education. Along with its project partners, the Center has developed a comprehensive domestic violence curriculum designed specifically for court leaders to enhance the legal process for domestic violence litigants.
The Domestic Violence Fundamentals Training (DVFT) is a comprehensive curriculum that covers domestic violence dynamics, access to justice, collaboration with community partners, and core competencies for court leaders and staff. If your site is interested in educating its court staff on domestic violence, the Center and its project partners can work with you to host local training programs.
