MCEDSV Serving Survivors with Substance Use Training
March 14, 2019


As advocates our role is to provide trauma informed, survivor-centered services to survivors.  Survivors have complex lives and often use, rely on, and abuse substances as a way of coping with trauma.  This training will examine how to advocate for and with survivors engaged in substance reliance; including harm reduction and survivor choice while still creating and maintaining safe spaces in a communal living environment.


Advocates for ending domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking, and anyone serving or interested in assisting survivors.


Merkeb Yohannes, Lisa Winchell-Caldwell, and Phillip Barnhart – Michigan Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence.
