Children of Chaos: Family Violence & Children (Online Session)
October 28 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
This event is open only to graduates of ProKids CASA University. If you would like more information about being a CASA Volunteer, please visit www.prokids.org/volunteer.
CASA Volunteers will learn how family violence/domestic violence/intimate partner violence and the resulting trauma and toxic stress impacts the health and well-being of the children and families involved. Additionally, CASA Volunteers will learn how to use behavioral observation tools to gather information and determine potential resources in order to make recommendations to the Court on appropriate interventions and services. Safety for the CASA, mandated reporting, and self-care will also be discussed.
“This training has been partially funded through a contract between Ohio CASA and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Ohio CASA supports local CASA/GAL programs throughout Ohio with training, technical assistance, legislative support, and standards implementation so volunteers may advocate for abused, neglected, and dependent children in the court system.”
