Featured Image for Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month is here! This year at SCCADVASA, our theme for DVAM is Safety and Justice. In the past we’ve focused on social media awareness campaigns, but we want to go beyond awareness and work toward bringing education and training to our community partners statewide.

We will be focusing on justice; economic, social, legal, etc. and how we can work together as a community to create safer systems. Our aim is to build the knowledge and capacity of community partners in order to provide trauma-informed care for our survivors when having to navigate these systems.

One of the most important things we believe we can do to support the work of our member organizations is by helping get the word out about events they have organized in their communities during October to bring awareness. Check out our calendar to see what's going on in your area!

Featured Image for He choked me: Strangulation Within the Context of Domestic and Sexual Violence

Our next webinar learning opportunity is on Thursday, July 27, 2017, 10:00AM - 11:00AM with Brian Bennett. Brian has 20 years of law enforcement experience with specialization and training in the area of domestic violence.

Strangulation is a potentially lethal form of domestic violence and sexual assault that occurs with a frequency unrecognized by many professionals working in all areas of response to these crimes. As a South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy Training Instructor, Brian will provide a foundational webinar that will: 

1. Educate participants on the need for increased awareness about strangulation. 
2. Increase participants’ ability to identify when strangulation has occurred. 
3. Enhance participants’ knowledge and understanding of working with victims who have been strangled. 
4. Increase capacity to improve policies and practices in working with victims. 
5. Strengthen offender accountability and ultimately improve victim safety.
