South Suburban Family Shelter, which provides services to families affected by domestic violence, will offer a training session titled “Abusers and Victims of any Gender: LGBTQ Inclusion in PAIP and Victim Services.”
This training will examine how to include HIV status and “down low” behavior — which is when men who identify themselves as heterosexual secretly are having sex with other men — in service provision and the parameters around discussing same-sex relationships with victims and abusers.
The training will be held from 9 a.m. to noon March 26 at Prairie State College, 202 S. Halsted St., Chicago Heights, according to a press release from South Suburban Family Shelter.
The cost is $40 per person.
South Suburban Family Shelter is a licensed continuing education unit sponsor for social work, counseling, Illinois Certified Domestic Violence Professional, and Certified Partner Abuse Intervention Professionals. Three CEUs will be awarded for attendees.
