WEBINAR: Advocate privilege and survivor confidentiality

Current DVSA advocates: register now for an upcoming training on the new confidentiality and advocate privilege law (HB 3476). 

This webinar will meet the standards set in the law for current advocates at qualified programs to be recognized as "certified advocates." This two hour training is produced by the Oregon Law Center in coordination with other partners. The training will be repeated four times so as to accommodate as many advocates as possible-- you need only attend one session. The training will be recorded and posted to this website for future reference.
