New Service Provider Training
The next New Service Provider Training is February 4-7, 2014 in Okemos, MI. NSPT 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 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.
Training is only available for paid employees of MDSVPTB-funded agencies and direct recipients of federal STOP funding, with an emphasis on employees with a year or less of experience.
This project is primarily funded by the Michigan Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment Board (MDSVPTB). The MDSVPTB is a Governor appointed board, housed within the Department of Human Services, that administers state and federal funding for domestic and sexual violence programs and advocacy services, develops and recommends policy, and develops and provides technical assistance and training on the issue of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
