Training and Workshops
The HOPE collaborative offers professional training for therapists, social workers, and others who work with children and families who have been affected by child abuse and neglect. Professional training opportunities focus on the treatments that are evidence based, utilize the Six Protective Factors and are research informed best practices for child abuse treatment. For more information on training including dates and times please visit our Training section. Workshops are offered to community members and professionals; parents, children, and professionals of all types. There is a variety of topics one may choose from to be taught on. If there is a topic not mentioned in the list please Contact the HOPE Clinician to discuss further and register for a training or workshop.
Child abuse victims and their caregivers will be able to receive referrals for treatment services available to them within the county. The HOPE collaborative will convene and work with a “Riverside County Treatment Providers Network” to seek additional funding for treatment services for child abuse victims. Treatment services proposed are evidence based and research informed. Collaborative multi-provider grant proposals to public and private foundations (including National foundations and funding sources) are continuously being submitted to help meet the gap in needed additional services in the county.

The HOPE Collaborative encourages community support and engagement in child abuse prevention activities. There are many ways that community members can become involved in child abuse prevention. These range from participating as a member of the regional collaborative, to participating as a volunteer at an awareness event or fundraising event for the HOPE collaborative. Community members can also donate funds to help the HOPE collaborative be able to do even more awareness, outreach and public education.
