Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Trainings – updated October 21, 2020

The Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence has several upcoming trainings that can help meet the DV and child abuse requirements for those issuing reports in court matters — see their events calendar here.

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) offers several free webinars on domestic violence and child abuse issues that can be found here.   Almost all are video or online (including podcasts) and many are free on the site.   

These two sources remain some of the best resources for the domestic violence and child abuse training that is required by ARS 25-406C for anyone appointed as a court-appointed attorney for a child, a court-appointed advisor (Family Rule 10), or “any person who conducts an investigation or prepares a report” to advise the family court.  As a reminder, those minimum standards are:    Six initial hours of training on domestic violence and Six initial hours of child abuse training.    Four subsequent hours of training are then required every two years on domestic violence and child abuse.
