Therapy Session

Fall 2022 Training

Our peer counseling training will allow you to provide direct client services. The training is certified by the California Office Of Emergency Services (CalOES). It meets the certification requirements as a Counselor/Advocate for our domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking agency (Community Beyond Violence in Grass Valley, CA) under Section 18294 of the California State Welfare and Institutions Codes and Section 13837 of the Penal Code.

The Fall 2022 training will be 10 weeks in length, Tuesday and Thursday evenings, two-hours per class meeting. There is also a required one-hour Orientation. 

Why Take This Training

We live in very challenging and dangerous times. Oftentimes it is difficult to know how to help in light of such events such as the dismantling of Roe v Wade. 

Oftentimes, engaging and giving back to those in crisis and need can help with those sentiments of "but what can I do about all of this?" 

At Community Beyond Violence, every day we support survivors of domestic and sexual violence who have had their bodily autonomy attacked. This is and must be a community effort. By completing our Crisis Intervention Training, you will be making a huge and positive impact.
