Short Description
Under Illinois state law, staff and volunteers of domestic violence programs are required to complete 40-hours of training in domestic violence advocacy, crisis intervention, confidentiality and other areas for their work with women, children and men experiencing domestic violence. Staff and volunteers cannot provide direct services to victims until they have completed this training. Vendors provide these 40-hour trainings, and develop and provide advanced and specialized trainings and technical assistance to increase the quality of existing services and expertise of domestic violence advocates. Vendors work closely with the Department and the established domestic violence system to build staff capacity and promote quality as outlined in the domestic violence services guidelines manual.
