Training Participation Agreement

  • • The PAIP Facilitator Training provides individuals with the essential skills and tools necessary to facilitate partner abuse intervention groups, reviews the Illinois Partner Abuse Protocol, and teaches best practices for group co-facilitation.
  • • Participants must be present for all of the training sessions. Participants are also expected to be on time for every scheduled session and may not be let in after 9:15 AM. Please contact Aniela Tyksinski at if you become aware of any conflicts to determine if accommodations can be made.
  • • This training will be held entirely on Zoom and satisfies IDHS requirements for protocol-approved PAIPs. Because the Illinois Certified Domestic Violence Professionals Board has not approved virtual PAIP trainings, participants will be unable to use this training towards CPAIP certification if they choose to seek such certification later. CPAIP certification is not required by IDHS.

  • • Demonstrate an understanding of essential PAIP curriculum components
