Faith Community Professional Education Initiative

The Faith Community Professional Education Initiative will incorporate victimization dynamics into seminary curricula. Under a previous project, the Denver VALE Board and the Denver Seminary collaborated to develop the "Victimization: Seminary Education in Pastoral Counseling" curriculum to instruct seminary students on the issues victims face. This initiative will identify schools of professional religious education representing a range of faiths in which the curriculum will be pilot tested, then refined and broadly disseminated. To complement this project, OVC will support the production of a promising practices video highlighting effective and innovative faith-based victim service programs. The video will feature both direct service and education initiatives that improve how faith communities respond to victims. For more information, visit the Denver District Attorney's Web site.
