Next Monday, June 4, Domestic Violence Solutions for S.B. County will begin a new series of training classes on the issue of domestic violence. The training meets the requirements for state certification for people who wish to work directly with victims or perpetrators of domestic violence, and aims to inform participants about domestic violence; challenge myths, beliefs, and attitudes that perpetrate domestic violence; and call participants to action. The 40-hour Domestic Violence Certification Training meets on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-9 p.m., and on Saturdays June 16 and 23, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The cost is $140, and includes a comprehensive course manual. Full and partial scholarships are available, and the fee can be waived for individuals who volunteer with Domestic Violence Solutions. Forty CEUs are available for MFT counselors, interns, and trainees. For info, call Sarita King at 963-4458 x11, or visit
