Military Members and Families Project:

Working with Military-Connected Survivors & Trauma, Intimate Partner Violence, and Mental Health Advocacy

September 28, 2021
2:30pm – 4:00pm ET


Do you work with military-connected survivors of domestic violence/intimate partner violence, sexual assault and/or stalking? If so, would you like more information on how to develop trauma-informed safety plans that address military-connected survivors and their families?

Join the NOVA/NCVLI team as we welcome Ms. Deidra Saina, LCSW, who will provide an interactive discussion on Trauma, Intimate Partner Violence, and Mental Health Advocacy: How Victim Advocates & Mental Health Professionals Can Work Together to Enhance Safety, Empower Clients, and Normalize Help Seeking Behaviors.

Goals of the training:

  • Attendees will be able to better understand intimate partner violence trauma triggers, which will provide them with a better understanding of how to respond and support clients.
  • Be able to develop trauma-informed safety plans, especially related to the immediate needs of military members and military-affiliated families.
  • To enhance coordination with mental health professionals and encourage clients to seek mental health support when needed.

You are invited to be a part of a training that will include interactive questions, videos, games and material that can be used when assisting clients with their mental health needs.
