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:

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. Please not that registration for each day denotes commitment to attend the entire day.
