The Utah Domestic Violence Coalition provides training and technical assistance to a variety of professionals in the state to enable them to provide the best quality service to victims of interpersonal violence.
The UDVC utilizes its own in house specialized training team to deliver training, as well as hosting national partners and technical advisers to ensure that Utah is current with the most recent evidence based approaches and national best practices. The UDVC also collaborates with local experts and partners to provide training to meet the specific needs of communities in our state.
As the state Coalition, a key part of our role is to support the non-profit victim services and advocates and much of our training is geared to their needs. The majority of trainings will be of interest and use to other professionals also however and so we encourage everyone to consult the full list of trainings on offer.
