Register here for the October 23-24, 2014 Advanced Training

This training is designed for people who have experience leading abuser education groups. We prefer that attendees have previously been trained in the Emerge model, but attendees who have been trained in a similar model, such as the Duluth model, are welcome as well. At this training, participants will grapple with the complexities of group leadership, learn new skills and interventions, and tackle cutting edge issues in the overall field of abuser education.

Topics Include:

  • Details about later-stage group interventions
  • Challenging cases encountered when working with abusers, including individual client cases, overall group issues, and problems related to agency policies
  • New and developing educational activities, strategies and interventions
  • Overview of Emerge group sessions via DVD recordings to examine specific interventions
  • Strengths and limitations of group leader styles
  • Parenting issues for abusers
  • Advanced role-playing examples and discussion

Tuition for this course is $200, and 13 continuing education credit hours are offered.

This training can be conducted as an out-of-state training.
