HSCADV recommends that all staff that have any level of contact with victims of domestic violence complete this training for the protection of the victim’s confidentiality. Hawaii Revised Statute 06262-0001-505.5 provides client/counselor privilege to individuals who:
1) work for a domestic violence agency,
2) are supervised by a domestic violence supervisor, and
3) have completed a 25 hour domestic violence training.
This training is a four-day interactive experience featuring information that will create a foundation to understand the issue of domestic violence. Each of the days includes topic-specific modules. Participants may register for individual days, up to all four days of training; however, the first day of training requires attendance as it covers the dynamics of domestic violence and is the foundation for the following days of training.
