Welcome to ICADV’s Webinar Library!

The Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV) is a not for profit, membership organization that works to eliminate domestic violence throughout Illinois. Through their mission they work to ensure the safety of domestic violence survivors, increase their access to services, and their freedom of choice. While holding abusers accountable for the violence they perpetrate; and encouraging the development of victim-sensitive laws, policies and procedures across all systems that impact survivors.

ICADV has offered trainings on domestic violence issues since 1981. Through our training initiative we strengthen local domestic violence service programs by conducting statewide trainings. We coordinate numerous trainings every year on a wide variety of topics, always focusing on current trends or pertinent issues in the domestic violence field. We will continue to develop additional online courses as new issues and trends arise. If you would like to know more about our in-person trainings, visit our website at www.ilcadv.org.

ICADV is a provider of continuing education (CE) for Illinois Certified Domestic Violence Professionals (ICDVP), Certified Partner Abuse Intervention Professional's (CPAIP), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors (LCPC) and Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW). CE’s are offered at nearly all trainings hosted by ICADV.
