Fall/Winter Workshops

GREAT NEWS!  – The State of Illinois and the Certified Domestic Violence Professional Board has waived the requirement for in-person workshops for this renewal year. ICDVP has place no restrictions regarding online CEU trainings for 2/28/21 and 03/31/21 renewal periods. The State of Illinois states “CE credits may be earned for successful completion of a correspondence-course (e.g., by mail, computer, pre-recorded online course program, live online course/program. etc.) that is offered by an approved sponsor who meets the requirements set forth in subsection (c). Each course shall include an examination." (The 15 CE online maximum has been dropped for this renewal cycle). All Counselors are required the Sexual Harassment Workshop and the Child Abuse Reporting workshop for this renewal period.  

In response, Bridges to a New Day, nfp is offering a series of workshops lasting from 1 hour to 3 hours in a Go to Meeting Format. We will offer Counselor’s CEU and CDVP CEU for all workshops. We have scheduled the 1 hour workshops at lunch time so you can eat lunch and learn at the same time.

  • Teaching Parenting Skills

    2/4/2021 - 12pm - 1pm

    One of the tough jobs is raising children. Yet, it is the one job that we have little if any training. Many parents only have the examples of their parents to follow. If they are good examples then it can cause an individual to stress about having to follow that path. If they did not like how they were raised then they may go the opposite extreme with negative results. This workshop is not on a specific type of parenting course but rather tips/techniques to use when interacting with any parent who wants to improve their parenting skills.
