Specialized Training

Specialized Trainer Application - Apply Now

The SOMB and DVOMB are assembling a catalog of possible training resources on specific and specialized areas that can be offered annually. We plan to sponsor and list trainings on the website that allows individuals to register for a particular training. Once enough individuals have registered for that training, our office will contract with the trainer, schedule the training, and notify those registered. Examples of some specific and specialized trainings include but are not limited to, female offenders, LGBT+ offenders, psychopathy, etc.

If you are an experienced trainer and would like to be considered for the 2021 year, please fill out this training application and email it back to us. Even if you are not an experienced presenter, we are here to help you! Please fill out the form and submit it to us. We want to help professionals in our field grow and share their knowledge and expertise. 

This form is intended for individuals who possess expertise in specialized areas that are relevant to the domestic violence and sex offense management fields. Submission of this form does not guarantee any contractual agreement with the Office of Domestic Violence and Sex Offender Management (ODVSOM). Rather, if selected, the ODVSOM may consider and choose to advertise training events based on interest, registration, cost, and availability. 

Team Resilience in the Workplace 

Treatment teams working with persons who have committed violent and/or sexual offenses require resilience to remain effective treatment providers – even under the stress of the current pandemic effects on the workplace. Many facilities are experiencing high turnover rates in organizational teams, and those who remain on the team may feel fatigued, burnt-out, and disconnected. These are effects of secondary traumatic stress, which is common among those working in health, mental health, and corrections fields. Investing in team resilience will help these essential work teams in achieving productivity, alignment, and higher morale through trying times. Learn more...

Date/Cost:  This is an online training based on interest. Given the uncertain circumstances around the COVID19 pandemic, there is a slight chance this training might occur in person. Once we have a group of 50 interested individuals registered, our office will finalize details on the date and cost of the training.

CDHS Listening Sessions

A statewide group of advocates, supported by the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), is inviting survivors of domestic violence to share with us their experiences with domestic violence and child welfare. CDHS has been convening the Domestic Violence and Child Welfare Task Group since August 2020. We would like to invite members of the general public and Task Group to share with us their experiences to inform our work. 

This will be an open forum for members to listen, learn and understand. We want to provide a safe environment for this and will work with individuals to develop the safety that they need to share their stories or experiences. You can speak during the meeting, ask someone to speak for you or submit a written statement for an organizer to read aloud. This is a public meeting but it will not be recorded.
