Programs & Services for Professionals

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Workshop for Professionals

Survivors and abusers alike often struggle with anxiety, depression and other forms of mental illness; many also turn to substances for relief.

This workshop promotes a greater awareness and understanding of IPV, its prevalence and intersectionality in behavioral and mental health, and empower providers to respond to IPV. The workshop offers 6 Continuing Education Contact Hours/Professional Education Hours for LMSW, LCSW, and LMHC.

Due to COVID-19, this will now be offered as a virtual, two-day workshop by RESOLVE and Tree of Hope Counseling. Our next workshop will be offered in late Spring of 2021. 

Virtual Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Workshop Series

To address the rise of domestic violence during COVID-19, RESOLVE put together a free series of monthly virtual workshops around various topics related to IPV. We hope these will be a resource to professionals, survivors, and community members alike. Our workshops are the third Monday of the month from 12-1pm. The series is a “Town Hall” styled format with a 45 minute presentation and 15 minute Q&A at the end. There is no RSVP needed required – you can attend by simply clicking on our Zoom link the day-of:

Note: Attendence is confidential (muted with no video or name publically displayed) but you will be asked to input a name and email before entering the meeting.

Community Education, Outreach & Trainings

At RESOLVE we know that we are stronger together and the only way we’ll ever break the cycle of domestic violence is by working collaboratively to close gaps in services. Our experienced team of clinical, trauma-trained therapists are available upon request to conduct in-service training with partner agencies, health care providers, faith communities and youth; and we are proud to participate in community events as exhibitors or speakers.

Survivor Transition Program (STP)

RESOLVE’s Survivor Transition Program (STP) is short-term, individual counseling for survivors of intimate partner violence. Whether you have a client currently in an abusive relationship or looking to heal from a past one, STP will help promote healing and independence. 

No formal referral or insurance is needed. Services are confidential, offered at low to no cost and provided by experienced NYS licensed therapists with expertise in trauma.

Given the voluntary nature of STP, we ask that your clients call us directly at 585-425-1580 when they are ready to get started. 

ACT (Act * Choose * Take Control)
Trauma-informed Self-Protection Course

Traditional self-defense courses often miss the mark for survivors of trauma. The idea of “becoming the aggressor” or “fighting back” doesn’t make sense in the context of an attack by an intimate partner or for many individuals who have experienced sexual or childhood abuse. 

With this in mind, the course focuses on: 

  • Understanding trauma triggers and how participants respond when triggers are activated
  • How to detect escalation and prepare, how to ground yourself in the face of a threat,
  • How to deflect an attack or remove yourself from danger.

The ACT Self-Protection Course was developed and is delivered collaboratively by RESOLVE trauma therapists and Brazilian Jujitsu Trainers from OntheRight allowing for customization to the needs of the participants. Throughout the course, participants are afforded choice in engagement and exposure, and therapeutic support is available.

Secondary Survivor Program

A secondary survivor is someone who has an individual in their life such as a family member, friend, colleague or partner who has experienced domestic violence and intimate partner violence (DV / IPV), and is currently or has previously supported that person in navigating an abusive relationship or within the healing process.

This program includes 4 to 6 sessions that goes over psychoeducation around trauma and abusive relationships, boundary setting, safety planning, and self care.

To get started, simply call 585-425-1580 or email us at
