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.

Description
 Introduction to the Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview Course Monday, April 9- Tuesday, April 10, 2018 MDT The Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview enables an understanding of how persons who experience trauma or high stress, due to automatic reactions by their brains, actually experienced the event and recorded it into memory. Key to effective evidence gathering, this methodology reduces the inaccuracy of the information provided during an interview and greatly enhances the understanding of the person's traumatic or stressful experience. Attendees will learn how to use the FETI Methodology to ensure that the interview participant feels safe and understood, to maximize recall, and to enhance the investigative process overall by increasing participant cooperation while reducing potentials for false information and recantation. The Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview is a highly effective technique for victim, witness and subject interviews. The Introduction to FETI course includes instruction on The Brain and Prolonged Threat, Defense Circuitry, Dissociation, Tonic Immobility, Collapsed Immobility, Impact of Trauma on Memory, Impact of Ethanol on Memory, the Certified FETI Methodology, Contextual Evidence, Experiential Evidence, Psychophysiological Evidence, the Difference between Questioning and Brain-based Cues, the Role of Interview in Context to an Investigation, the FETI Funnel and Reworking Traditional Questions into FETI Brain-based Cues.
