The Center is approved by the Illinois Certified Domestic Violence Professionals, Inc. (ICDVP), the certification board for Domestic Violence Professionals in Illinois, as a Certified Training Site for the 20-hour Training for Partner Abuse Intervention Group Co-Facilitators.  CADP provides this training up to three times per year and CEU workshops on an occasional basis. This training is required in order to co-facilitate Partner Abuse Intervention Groups that are recognized in Illinois under a protocol established and monitored by the Illinois Department of Human Services. This training is also a requirement for persons who wish to be certified as CPAIP (Certified Partner Abuse Intervention Professionals) by the ICDVP, Inc.

The Center for Advancing Domestic Peace works closely with providers of victims services. CADP staff members provide the training segment on Partner Abuse Intervention (PAI) services and abuser profiles for the 40-hour training sessions provided by Family Rescue, Apna Ghar, and the Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women's Network.  The Center has also partnered with the Network to provide similar training to Cook County Sheriff's Police, suburban law enforcement officers, and to Assistant State's Attorneys, State's Attorney's investigators, and Cook County Adult Probation officers. Dr. Charlie Stoops, one of the agency's co-founders, provides the 40-hour training segment on abusers and PAI services for Connections for Abused Women and their Children.

The Center would like to help you with your training and Continuing Education needs. If your organization would like to host a workshop on some aspect of Partner Abuse Intervention, or if you would like to attend a workshop on a particular issue related to Partner Abuse Intervention, please let us know and we will consider what we may be able to offer that might help meet those needs.
