Do you work with survivors of woman abuse who are dealing with family law issues? Do you want to learn more about the family court process, how to present evidence of abuse effectively and how to support women moving through family court?

Get training on these issues and more through “After She Leaves: Supporting Women through the Family Court Process”, online training developed for those who support woman abuse survivors and their children involved in family court cases.

Created by Springtide Resources and Luke’s Place Support and Resource Centre, this self-directed training is skills-focused. Topics covered include:

  • safety strategies for the court setting
  • writing affidavits
  • court documents and procedures
  • working effectively with lawyers and court officials
  • safety and access issues to anticipate when the court process is over

The training also provides an introduction to the dynamics of woman abuse and an overview of family law for those less familiar with these issues or wishing to enhance their knowledge.

This content is available as an 8 module package or as individual trainings on specific topics.

The content was developed by lawyer Pamela Cross.
