Training & Technical Assistance
MCEDV offers training, consultation, and technical assistance to statewide and multi-regional entities seeking to improve their domestic abuse responses. We also support the work of our members, who provide these same services in their local communities.
From general education and awareness-building around the issue to highly specialized policy development and focused problem-solving, we work to foster a coordinated community response to domestic abuse—one that promotes both safety for victims and accountability for abusers.
We provide training for a variety of audiences, including:
- Medical professionals
- Faith communities
- Child welfare agencies
- Law enforcement
- Behavioral health professionals
- Professional associations
Examples of ongoing MCEDV training offerings:
- Maine Criminal Justice Academy – Basic Law Enforcement Training Program
- Maine Department of Health & Human Services, Office of Child & Family Services – Basic
& Advanced Caseworker Training
- Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles – Responding to Abuse in the Workplace for New Employees
- Maine Department of Transportation – Responding to Abuse in the Workplace for Supervisors & Managers
- Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner Program – Responding to Abuse in the Healthcare Setting
These are just a few examples of our work. We provide topic-specific training on request. For information about statewide or multi-region options available through MCEDV, please contact us at [email protected], or visit our blog.
