Family Advocacy 301: Beyond the Basics – Overcoming Common Obstacles in Advocacy


Family Advocacy 301 is a two-day course that goes beyond roles and responsibilities to address some of the common obstacles and challenges faced by advocates. Topics include: Domestic Violence and Child Abuse, Prioritizing – Balancing Duties as an Advocate, Identity and Values, Cases Involving Children with Sexual Behavior Problems, Childhood Mental Disorders, Sharing Solutions to Common Challenges, and Longevity in the Field: Preventing Burnout. 

Prerequisites: Completion of Family Advocacy 201. It is recommended that advocates attend Family Advocacy 301 at least eight weeks after completing Family Advocacy 201

Approval Process:
Registrants will be notified of approval status after the registration deadline, approximately one month prior to training. 

Offering quality, professional training in a classroom environment is a key priority for our organization, and we feel that this format is the most conducive to effective learning. Our format allows for small groups, one-on-one coaching and ample Q&A. However, given the inherent size of classroom training, we have to carefully manage the registration process. Our goal is to ensure that participants have timely access to the training sessions they are in need of in order to do their important jobs effectively. In reviewing registrations, our process is to assess both the registrant CAC’s needs as well as the registrant’s completion of course prerequisites.
