Join us for a selection of pre-recorded NW Network webinar favorites! This week, we recommend giving a listen to sessions from our three-part assessment series.
Assessing Patterns of Coercive Control, Part 1: A Basic Skill for LGBTQ DV Advocacy
This session offers an exciting introduction to the Northwest Networks tool and analysis on assessing patterns of power and control in abusive relationships. Developed over 20 years of work with LGBTQ survivors of intimate partner violence, the Northwest Networks approach to assessment continues to be a fundamental consideration, and practice for any organization hoping to create relevant, accessible support for LGBTQ individuals, as well as broadly expanding our capacity to holistically respond to the experiences of all survivors.
Presented by Connie Burk and Amarinthia Torres, Northwest Network
