Empowerment Based Advocacy
3/16/2020 from 9am-5pm
This training will be hosted by MCEDSV
This training will focus on defining and implementing empowerment-based services. The presentation will be discussion and scenario based. The discussion will be grounded in an intersectional and survivor-centered lens. Participants can anticipate challenging questions regarding current norms and rules in their agencies as well as opportunities to share successful implementation of survivor-centered and intersectional polices, rules, and regulations that they’ve been able to implement in an empowerment-based way. This training will include time to discuss the barriers and challenges that can impact our ability to remain empowerment-based and opportunities to strategize on solutions to issues without impacting survivor-centered practices.
This training will be held at the Sheraton Detroit Novi Hotel – 21111 Haggerty Road, Novi, MI 48375. Parking is free for hotel guests. Participants will be responsible for their own breakfast and lunch. Training will begin promptly at 9am (registration begins at 8:30 am) There will be a 75 minute lunch break and there are a number of restaurants nearby.
