Attend A WORKSHOP


Voices Set Free hosts no cost educational workshops in Oregon that address Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV). These initial workshops are designed for all people that engage with children and adults impacted by CDV. Growing up with CDV is the SINGLE BEST PREDICTOR of engaging in it later as an adult. CDV directly correlates to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's).


Voices Set Free was awarded a Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV) TOOLKIT by the Childhood Domestic Violence Association (CDVA). The workshop willreview the tools provided and how they achieve optimal awareness and understanding. According to CDVA, “Childhood Domestic Violence is the last remaining unknown, unnamed, unaddressed, untreated major childhood adversity.”
