The Oregon State Basic Victim Assistance Academy (Basic Academy) provides fundamental education for victim service providers and allied professionals who routinely interact with victims of crime. The Summer 2019 Basic Academy in Bend, Oregon, will require online distance learning on select dates in July and August, in addition to in-person learning from August 19-22, 2019.
The Basic Academy is designed for advocates who are new to the role of advocacy. The curriculum includes sessions that cover the core competencies of victim advocacy taught by local advocacy experts.
The Basic Academy is committed to graduating advocates who possess the core competencies necessary to compassionately, knowledgeably, collaboratively, and sustainably support agency in the aftermath of crime.
Topics May Include: Justice System Overview; Ethics; Privacy; Crime Victims’ Rights; Effective Communication; Crisis Intervention; Intimate Partner Violence; Vicarious Trauma, Resiliency and Self-Care; Neurobiology of Trauma; and Financial Recovery.
Target Audience: This training is designed for Oregon advocates new to the role of advocacy who are working in system-based and community-based agencies. Allied professionals working with crime victims (e.g. mental health counselors, crisis response workers) will be enrolled as space allows. Registration priority is given to Oregon participants; out-of-state participants will be enrolled as space allows.
