The aim of this program is to further enhance knowledge among individuals who work with or advocate for survivors and victims of crime. Certificate completion will require all three workshops, which will address a variety of issues that may be encountered when working with victims of crime. Completion of all three workshops will earn the certificate, while individual workshops can earn CEUs. The cost will be $195 per workshop and registering more than one week in advance prior to the start of each workshop would be appreciated.
The workshops will be held in Springfield, Missouri, on the Missouri State University campus. The exact location for the workshops currently relies on the number of registrants, so will be determined as the date approaches.
For those registrants who will be traveling from out of town, we are currently working with nearby hotels to arrange for lodging at a discounted rate.
In this workshop, an overview of the historical treatment of crime victims and crime victims’ laws will be discussed. The criminal justice system will also be navigated and phases of the criminal justice process will be explored.
In this workshop, communication with victims and survivors of crime will be the focus. Key communication skills, spiritual & cultural competency, and identifying immediate, short-term, and long-term effects impacting victims will be discussed.
In this workshop, crisis intervention, advocacy, and identifying client needs will be highlighted. Ethical decision-making, federal victim-related resources, and developing resilience will also be covered.
Those who may benefit from this certificate: Social Service Providers, Corrections Personnel, Juvenile Officers, Victim Service Providers, Mental Health Providers, Child Development Specialists, Nurses, Paralegals, and Law Enforcement.
*In order to receive the certificate, all three workshops must be completed. Workshops may be taken in any order or independent of one another. CEUs are also available for each individual workshop.
