On April 1, Alberta’s The Disclosure to Protect Against Violence Act (Clare’s Law)  came into effect. Clare’s law provides a framework for disclosure of a person’s history of violence to their intimate partners as well as opportunity to connect with social support services across Alberta.

WHY TAKE THIS TRAINING?   Your clients need to know about Clare’s Law, and may need help understanding and navigating the application and disclosure processes. And with their consent, you may act as a third-party applicant. Your agency may also be a member of the Clare’s Law Network which provides social service support responses.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?   The people who support people in Alberta who may be impacted by domestic violence. That may include social service providers, social workers, psychologists, informal supporters and networks, and more. If you or your organization are not experienced in supporting people impacted by domestic abuse, we recommend you take REAL Talk before attending Clare’s Law Social Service Training.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:   In this webinar, you’ll get the who, what, where, when and why of Clare’s Law. That includes a walkthrough of your role in informing your clients about Clare’s Law, acting as a third-party applicant, and providing support for applicants who ask for it. The webinar will be presented by Alex Thompson, Director of ITRAC and Justice lead for the development of the Disclosure to Protect Against Domestic Violence Act for the Government of Alberta, and Amy Munroe, RSW, the Direct Service Team Lead at Sagesse.
