KCSDV provides almost 100 training opportunities annually, and about 30 percent of those trainings are made possible through KCSDV’s Statewide Training and Technical Assistance Project.
The goal of the Statewide Training and Technical Assistance Project is to build and enhance capacity, knowledge, skills, and abilities, of professionals across the state and to improve responses for victims and survivors in Kansas. The project addresses the need for consistent, quality statewide training and technical assistance on trauma-informed and victim-centered services.
Through the project, over 1,050 professionals were trained from July 2018 through May 2019. There were more than 250 contact hours provided.
Training participants and attendees included sexual and domestic violence advocates, prosecutors, attorneys, law enforcement, corrections personnel, school officials, nurses and medical professionals, social workers, home visitors, military personnel, and other allied professionals.
Participants in the trainings reported a high degree of satisfaction with the material presented.
The project is supported by the State General Fund for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault as administered by the Kansas Governor’s Grants Program.
