BDSM and Intimate Partner Violence Training

on Monday, 22 February 2016. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

As with every type of relationship, intimate partner violence (IPV) can occur in relationships that include consensual BDSM. Now NCSF can educate your local victim service providers about the difference between kink and abuse.

The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom is offering a free, half-day training on how to work effectively with these clients. After completing this interactive workshop, participants will leave with the cultural competency to serve clients who incorporate BDSM into their intimate relationships.

Topics will include:

BDSM-affirming language to use during intake

Research about BDSM participants and why they may be reluctant to reach out to service providers

Composite case studies of situations handled by the NCSF and trained IPV service providers.

On-site training is available for locations in, or within an hour from, the metropolitan Washington, D.C area. Otherwise, training will take place over an online platform like Google Hangouts or Skype. (If on-site training is desired outside the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, requesting agency will be responsible for travel and lodging costs.)

Facilitator Information:

Ashley Haymond brings experience in training development and group facilitation to her work. She has extensive knowledge of the BDSM community and an understanding of the latest research in violence prevention.
