New Service Provider Training Overview

 

This project is primarily funded by the Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board (MDSVPTB).

New Service Provider Training is the premier training for staff new to working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, and is essential for creating an informed and skilled workforce. Developed in 1996 by the current Michigan Coalition
to End Domestic and Sexual Violence (MCEDSV) and the Michigan Domestic and
Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board (MDSVPTB), the training fulfills
a critical need for high quality, standardized training for service providers. New
Service Provider Training has received national acclaim as being one of the first standardized curriculum for domestic violence and sexual assault service providers.

Who is Eligible to Attend? NSPT is open to paid employees with a year or less of
experience of MDSVPTB-funded agencies and direct recipients of federal
STOP funding.
