Free domestic abuse workshop at UCA

The University of Central Arkansas Division of Outreach and Community Engagement has partnered with the Unseen Homeless Campaign of Conway to offer a continuing education workshop on domestic violence for individuals who serve or work with victims or survivors of domestic abuse.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to recognize the signs of domestic violence, build confidence for assisting victims or survivors of domestic abuse situations, learn ways to advocate for survivors and understand the effects of serving victims such as compassion fatigue and how to overcome those personal battles.

The workshop is 9 a.m. to noon Friday, March 18, at the Brewer-Hegeman Conference Center at UCA. This event is FREE and open to the public. Online registration is available at uca.edu/outreach/domesticviolence.

Guest speakers will include Phillip Fletcher, executive director, City of Hope Outreach; Beth Goodrich, executive director, Women’s Shelter of Central Arkansas, Inc.; Angela McGraw, Women and Children First, Little Rock; and Carrie Curtis, Women’s Shelter of Central Arkansas, Inc.

This event is sponsored by the UCA Division of Outreach and Community Engagement, UNSEEN Homeless Campaign and is funded through a grant from the UCA Women’s Giving Circle.
