Domestic Violence Certificate
This program provides students with the experience and knowledge needed to intervene safely and effectively on behalf of survivors of gender-based violence, a vulnerable group likely to be encountered by helping professionals in all areas of practice.
All students are required to provide service in the community to engage in learning about best practices, and to implement services for domestic violence survivors in real-world settings. Students' experiences in their internship will be complemented by classroom learning regarding the topic of domestic violence, including interventions, safety-planning, and evidence-based practices.
The Survivor Link AmeriCorps Program is a great way for undergraduate students completing the Domestic Violence Certificate to gain a unique perspective about support services for survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence, all while earning a living allowance and an educational award!
The ASU Domestic Violence Certificate is offered through the School of Social Work and is available for all in person ASU undergraduate students interested in gaining expertise specific to domestic and sexual violence evidence-based interventions.
Bachelor of Social Work graduates will be prepared to be social workers in various practices, focusing on advocacy, intervention, safety planning, case management and problem-solving functions with individuals, groups, families, and the community around them.
Our Survivor Link AmeriCorps program is highly compatible and well integrated with the BSW track at ASU. Students pursuing a BSW at ASU are encouraged to consider our Survivor Link AmeriCorps program.
