The Minnesota Alliance on Crime and the Minnesota Center for Psychology (MCP) present a virtual cross-training for both advocates and therapists. Victims and Others Impacted by Crime-Services (VOIC-S), is a new program of the Minnesota Center for Psychology that offers mental health therapy services to victims impacted by crime. VOIC-S consists of mental health professionals who are specially trained to work with victims of crime and trauma focused therapies. The program was designed with input from victim advocates who will work in partnership with the therapists to ensure that barriers to care are reduced.
This training is for advocates who would like to learn about the process of making a referral to MCP and how best to prepare a survivor for the therapeutic process. The training is also for therapists who will learn about the criminal, legal, and emotional processes the survivor must go through after the crime. The goal of the training is to share information between advocates and therapists to reduce barriers to therapy and improve outcomes.
This training is free for all to attend live on Zoom, the recording of the event will be available exclusively for MAC members.
