WCADV designs training primarily for domestic violence victim advocates in Wisconsin. We conduct regional and statewide training events in centrally located facilities, web-based seminars, and customized on-site training for staff and boards of domestic violence programs.
Training for advocates focuses on both practical and philosophical concerns related to anti-domestic violence work. For these trainings, WCADV relies on local advocates as well as state and national speakers to share their expertise. Additionally, WCADV delivers domestic violence-related training to professionals in numerous systems such as legal, law enforcement, health care, and social services.
Training not only educates, but also provides opportunities for networking and coalition building locally, statewide and nationally, that are critical to our work. For a training calendar and more information about individual training events, see our Events page.

VIDEO / DVD Resource Guide
The WCADV Video/DVD Library contains videos and DVDs that can be used for presentations, trainings, support groups, etc. It is recommend that you preview any borrowed resource to decide how much of it serves your objective(s).
These video and DVD resources have been recommended and reviewed by members of WCADV at the time of acquisition. Some of them were reviewed by the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence and the Bureau on Aging. Some are old. Some are new. This VIDEO/DVD Library Guide, like the WCADV website itself, is undergoing revision. In the meantime, what you find here will acquaint you with the current collection and WCADV's lending policies.
