 This course will offer coaching choices, methods and approaches, and ways to teach clients and families how to overcome victimization and build resiliency. Having the skills necessary to work collaboratively with other professionals who provide treatment, legal, or social support services is a  necessary skill for professional coaches.   The characteristics of violence and patterns in men vs. women as perpetrators or victims will be explored. An in-depth examination and discussion regarding the effects of domestic violence and residual trauma will be offered.  Many “victims” are rebuilding their lives and experience increased risks when attempting to leave the situation, acquire a job or work skills and secure a job, or other attempts at independence.  For those who are already working, the employer costs are extreme in relation to changes in productivity, absenteeism, and health-related concerns.  Coaches can make a difference by assisting victims with the development of advocacy skills.  

     Terminology referred to as survivor-defined, trauma-informed, or strength-based have resulted from changes in our approach to understanding domestic violence which has resulted in a change in perspective to improve service and increase prevention efforts by listening to the stories of those who have survived, and by creating a fresh approach and partnership of victim-defined advocacy.  Coaches can contribute to this important social movement, and play a significant advocacy partnership role in listening, reviewing the risks,  implementing strengthened plans, building support, and by identifying relevant options. Empowerment is a major focus in coaching, and assisting the client in addressing the batter and life-generated risks in a realistic manner will be a necessary step toward change.
