Settlement Worker Training

Battered Women Support Services was in Victoria, BC on March 11th and 12th hosting a Settlement Worker Training workshop. The seventh in a series that has taken us across the province to Surrey, Burnaby, Vancouver, Abbotsford, New Westminster, Kelowna and Kamloops. Over 200 women and men working in settlement, ESL/ELSA, victim services, transition houses, neighbourhood houses, women’s centres and immigrant serving organizations have attended.

As a partnership between The People’s Law School and The Law Foundation of BC, the Settlement Worker Training Workshops have been designed to support and enhance current work while emphasizing assessment and safety planning for Non-Status, Refugee and Immigrant women who have experienced violence. Experience trainers and guest speakers will guide participants through a process that draws on group knowledge.

Participants learn a variety of strategies that will help them comprehensively meet the needs of Non-Status, Refugee and Immigrant Women. Please see our photos below from our settlement training workshop in Victoria.
