Freeing The Voices Of Those Living With Domestic Violence

Voices Set Free was awarded a Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV) TOOLKIT by the Childhood Domestic Violence Association (CDVA). The workshop will review 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.” 

Voices Set Free hosts no cost and fee based educational workshops in Oregon that address Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV). Growing up with CDV is the SINGLE BEST PREDICTOR of engaging in it later as an adult. Childhood Domestic Violence is one of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

Eric Welch, PRC, is a Washington County Parent Mentor working with Morrison Child and Family Services. He grew up with Childhood Domestic Violence and has been on a journey of healing over the past 10 years. “I look forward to sharing my story. Hopefully it will inspire and stimulate your passion for helping others.”

Please note that the content covered in this workshop may be triggering for people with trauma and/or lived experience with family violence.
