TCFV presents three preconference educational modules that are included in your registration fee.
Ethics and Boundaries for BIPPs
This workshop provides BIPP staff with a framework on boundary violations and ethical responsibilities when working with offenders. This session approaches ethics and boundaries through critical thinking and is based on Marilyn Armour’s At Personal Risk: Boundary Violations in Professional-Client Relationships.
Violence as Oppression
This workshop session will explore how oppression and family violence intersect. This session will give attendees a short history on oppression, its effects on marginalized communities and how oppression may affect beliefs and ideals relating to family violence. Attendees will begin to engage in discussion about how effects of oppression, a macrocosm, affect their work with batterers.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer (LGBTQ) Communities & Intimate Partner Violence
This interactive training examines the obstacles that LGBTQ survivors of Intimate Partner Violence face when seeking help and/or services. This training asks participants to consider the special concerns associated with LGBTQ individuals facing intimate partner violence, and how that violence manifests in similar and different ways than it does in heterosexual partner relationships. The training also supports participants to explore potential barriers to services, such as structural and institutional oppression, lack of legal and economic protections conveyed via marriage, increased poverty, and historical exclusion. A special focus on understanding the language, vocabulary, and various presentations of LGBTQ identities allows participants to more competently understand participant needs.
Everyone has a different idea of what it means to be a man and we learn a great deal about masculinity from the men in our lives. Some are men we know, others we just see on TV. Some of them teach us positive lessons; others show us what not to do. Just about everyone receives mixed messages about violence against women and what role it plays in men’s lives.
This session will helps us critically examine messages we receive about masculinity and violence against women in order to create a social change in our communities.
Participants will learn:
- The connections between masculinity a culture of violence against women
- How masculinity can help all men work toward preventing violence against women
- How to overcome personal resistance and social messages to not be involved
- The ways other men have integrated violence prevention efforts into their lives
- What men can do on a day-to-day basis to prevent violence against women in their communities
