Conference Description:

"The Intersection of Domestic Violence and Substance Abuse" will be presented on Tuesday February 15, 2011, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Barbara Niess May, MPH, MSW; Executive Director, SafeHouse Center; and David J.H. Garvin, LMSW; Director, Alternatives to Domestic Aggression, Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County. Domestic violence offender and survivor alcohol and other drug use/abuse will be central to this discussion. The audience will be provided with a primmer regarding batterer tactics, strategies, and core beliefs which hold the batterer accountable for his abusive behaviors while maintaining and promoting survivor safety. The program will help participants to recognize the critical importance of understanding domestic violence and alcohol/other drug use/abuse in order to safely and effectively intervene and/or interrupt the batterer's abusive behaviors. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education Series. Our presentations offer helpful information that supports chemically dependent people in achieving, maintaining, and strengthening their recoveries. The series educates family members on issues relating to addiction and its effect on the family, and offers information that will be useful for friends and family members in relating to addicts whether they are actively using or in recovery. Professionals and students will also benefit from this pertinent information. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is offered for each workshop. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services.
