Domestic Violence E-Learning Course
The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) created an one-hour interactive learning course, Domestic Violence: Understanding the Basics by the NRCDV and VAWnet, the National Online Resource Center on Violence Against Women (November 2012). It describes the dynamics and common tactics that characterize domestic violence, provides an overview of the scope and impact on individuals and society, explores the underlying factors that allow domestic violence to exist, offers insight into the various risks and choices that survivors face, and shares how to be part of the solution. Divided into 10 sections addressing common questions related to domestic violence, this course will help new advocates, allied professionals, students, and the general public achieve a basic understanding of this complex issue.
