Please join us for a 2-day workshop intended for social workers, victim services staff, counsellors, therapists, shelter workers, law enforcement personnel, lawyers, activists, policy makers, and students in Ottawa, on November 5-6th, 2015, with Dr. Cathy Richardson, University of Montreal.

Dr. Cathy Richardson is a family and community therapist specializing in practice and research involving recovery from violence. She is currently involved in advancing response-based practice, a dignity-based approach to violence prevention and recovery with individuals and groups. She has worked with Indigenous communities, with victims of spousal assault, and with families in child protection settings. She is a co-founder of the Centre for Response-Based Practice and is an Associate Professor at the University of Montreal. Response-based practice is centred on dignity and honouring resistance in conversations with people who have been harmed.

Cathy is interested in the intersections of healing, recovery, social justice, culture and spirituality. You can read more about the training & register here.

The Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime offers support, research and education to survivors and stakeholders.
