Training and Technical Assistance

DVRP was founded to ensure that abused Asian/Pacific Islander (A/PI) survivors reaching out for assistance would have access to culturally and linguistically appropriate services. To accomplish this objective, we:

  • Train A/PI community leaders to recognize signs of domestic violence and provide appropriate tools to respond effectively to the needs of survivors in their community
  • Provide cultural humility trainings to domestic violence program staff to build skills in cultural humility
  • Offer technical assistance and consultation on working with immigrant survivors or A/PI survivors

Advocates Training

This extensive workshop is highly comprehensive and provides insight into the majority of our smaller workshops, including bystander intervention, cultural humility, domestic violence, sexual assault, and healthy relationships. Come learn the role of an advocate, how to advocate for people of different identities, and how to consider oppression, prejudice, and privilege when advocating.

Bystander Intervention

What is a bystander? In this workshop, we discuss the definition, causes, and consequences of a bystander and how to be an effective bystander in everyday fights against gender violence.

Compassion Fatigue

Compassion fatigue can happen to the best of us and creep up on you before you know it. Learn about the definition, symptoms, and warning signs of compassion fatigue as it pertains to the helping profession and how best to build resistance to continue helping others.

Cultural Humility

Don’t know what cultural humility is? Come to this workshop to learn the definition of cultural humility and how to utilize it when working with survivors. We’ll also build a common understanding of culture, oppression, privilege, stereotyping, and its effect on the work we do.

Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (DVSA) 101

One of the building blocks of DVRP; in this workshop, we’ll talk about what domestic violence and sexual assault can look like in the Asian/Pacific Islander community and how to build culturally-specific resources for survivors.

Healthy Relationships

What differentiates a healthy relationship from an unhealthy one? Let’s discuss the relationship spectrum, consent, dating violence and how they correlate to stories of sexual assault.


No one can be distilled down to a single identity. In this workshop, participants will build a clear understanding of intersectionality, identity, its importance in nonprofit and social justice movements, and explicit vs implicit oppression.

Toxic Masculinity

Be a man. What does it mean to you? In this training, we learn about the cultural factors that exacerbate sexual assault and domestic violence, and which result in an emotionally oppressive environment for all genders.
