Domestic Violence Online Course:
SPEAKING UP! RECOGNIZING & ADDRESSING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE in the CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY (student edition).
This course is designed to inform and equip you to understand domestic violence and so minister effectively in DV situations, that you would be a part of the growing movement addressing the unspeakable with defiant hope. Today’s Christian Minister needs to know how to effectively intervene in DV situations and minister to abuse victims. This outstanding and thorough training is especially for Christians & Christian ministers, taught by expert Christian DV & abuse counselor (35+ yrs.), Dr Nancy Murphy, founder of Northwest Family Life Christian counseling group in Seattle, WA. She has developed this training because she has a huge heart for the church and its ministers, and she knows that Christian ministers are who most DV victims first turn to for help. Are you truly prepared?
View this YouTube presentation by Nancy to introduce why ministers/Christians should care about DV & training.
This is a self-paced no-time-limit course of 12 units. While it is offered at the graduate level (Seattle School of Theology & Psychology – Dr Dan Allender, where Nancy is also an adjunct professor), for mental health counselors for CEU’s, and for training to teach about domestic violence, Nancy has agreed to offer this course at the CHRISTIAN RESPONSE level at an extremely reduced cost of only $37 USD!
