Description
Rural communities have a deep connection to faith and spirituality. Advocacy programs inevitably must find a way to build relationships with faith communities to provide holistic services to survivors of sexual violence. Yet many rural programs report struggling to build this connection. Join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project and Anne Marie Hunter and Alyson Morse Katzman from Safe Havens Interfaith Partnership Against Domestic Violence and Elder Abuse on this CALL that will bring together rural programs across the country to discuss working with faith communities. Our peer sharing calls are a space to share success, challenges, and to brainstorm together how to move forward. This call is capped at 30 participants.

Description
“The Intersectionality of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Substance Use/Substance Use Disorders” will be presented on Tuesday October 23, 2018; from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by David J.H. Garvin MSW, LMSW; Vice President, Programs and Facilities, Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County and Founder, Alternatives to Domestic Aggression, Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County; and Barbara Niess May, MPA, MSW; Executive Director, SafeHouse Center. There is a strong correlation between domestic violence/sexual assault and alcohol/other drug use – and correlation does not equal cause/effect nor does it define personal responsibility. Intoxication does not explain abuse or assault, excuse a perpetrator’s behaviors, or justify a person being assaulted or abused. Domestic violence/sexual assault offender and survivor alcohol and other drug use will be central to this discussion.  The audience will be provided with a primmer regarding perpetrator tactics, strategies, and core beliefs which hold the perpetrator accountable for abusive/assaultive behaviors while maintaining and promoting survivor safety. The program will help participants to recognize the critical importance of understanding the relationship between domestic violence/sexual assault and alcohol/other drug use and substance use disorders in order to safely and effectively intervene and/or interrupt the perpetrator's behaviors and support the survivor.  This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about substance use disorders, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent people with addiction and their families from getting help and getting well.  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 provided. 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 services for people with substance use disorders. For information, please contact Dawn Farm at 734-485-8725 or info@dawnfarm.org, or see http://www.dawnfarm.org/programs/education-series.
