For over 20 years, the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance Training Institute has played a leading role throughout Virginia in delivering forward-thinking and accessible education, training, and resources to professionals, allied professionals, and members of the community who work on the front lines to address and prevent sexual and domestic violence. board-953161_640 (2)

The Training Institute is made up of a diverse, dynamic group of faculty members and Action Alliance staff committed to preventing, healing, and ending sexual and domestic violence in Virginia.

Trainings are delivered in a variety of ways including in-person, online, regionally, statewide, and peer-to-peer but all of our offerings are based on 3 “lenses” –

  1. Racial-justice
  2. Trauma-informed
  3. Asset-building

Our trainings are designed and delivered to focus on the experience of the participant – you will not find straight lectures or typical classroom experiences with us, and we hope you find this to be a good thing! board-784347_640 (2)
