The next general membership meeting of ADVIP will be held sometime in March or April of next year. As before, the meeting will be held on Zoom, and will include a presentation on a topic related to domestic violence and domestic violence intervention. If you have a particular topic you would like to suggest for the training portion of the meeting, please let me know. You can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I presented at a wonderful conference in Toronto a few months ago, and all of the presentations are now on video. Great for anyone interested in the topic of family law and responding to domestic violence and child abuse accusations, good parenting, and parental alienation.

The 2022 ADVIP International Conference was attended by nearly 80 people, and reviews have so far been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks to all the wonderful presenters who participated! If you missed the conference on October 12, or wish to experience it again, you can do so by clicking on the new link on the ADVIP home page. ADVIP members, as usual, get a significant discount.
If you are on the front line of working with domestic violence and abuse offenders, we’ve developed a free, online course that might be a good way to supplement and enhance the great work you do with your clients.
The Transformation Journey Course
As a pillar of our mission to stop domestic violence and abuse at its source by restoring and healing those causing harm, we are excited to announce the launch of a new resource: The Transformation Journey course.
A few years ago, we released our Guidebook. Then, we began facilitating Groups to discuss the concepts shared in the Guidebook in a safe, interactive environment. Both initiatives have been wildly successful, with thousands accessing these resources.
As good as these tools are, they don’t work for everyone. Some struggle to stay engaged with simply reading a workbook and answering questions. For others, shame prevents them from signing up and showing up for an online group. Or, the group’s schedule simply didn’t work with theirs.
In response, we’ve developed an online course that turns our Guidebook and Groups into a self-paced, multi-media, interactive experience. It’s not a replacement for the other two, just a great alternative. And it’s free.
If you did not know already, registration is now open for our upcoming conference, to be held on the Zoom platform October 12. The title of this conference is: “Safety and justice: A call for reform in domestic violence arrest, prosecution and treatment policies.”
As with all of our previous conferences, ADVIP members get a substantial discount on their registration costs. CEUs are available for all BIPs, including LCSWs, MFTs. and LCCs.
This is a training for providers who are interested in trauma-informed, evidence-based IPV intervention. You can be certified to deliver Strength at Home or just use the training to bolster your knowledge in this area. Information in the flyer below.
Hello all…I will be providing a webinar for the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence (NPEIV) on December 8th from 10am-Noon (PST). The cost is $25 and CE’s are available for additional cost. All proceeds go toward supporting the goals and activities of NPEIV.
The research-informed content will cover the important differences between women’s and men’s violence in intimate partner relationships; measuring changes in beliefs and behaviors in women’s abuse; and curriculum examples which illustrate gender-responsive, evidence-based interventions.
Hi all…There are still a few openings in the upcoming 16-hr training for BIP facilitators. We’ll be discussing the influence of emotional intelligence, attachment theory and using a victim-centered approach to decrease recidivism.
Professional CE’s provided by IVAT.
