We are excited to announce that our Spring “open-call” training will be on April 16-17, 2016!
This training is available to anyone interested in providing abortion doula services to their clients and communities. Our priority is ensuring that everyone who wants an abortion doula has access to one.
About the BADP Open-Call Training:
This 2-day training will provide an overview of abortion procedures and processes, while focusing on the development of pain management techniques and emotional support skills so that doulas can advocate for and support their clients through medical and surgical abortions. The training will include extensive values clarification exercises, in addition to role-plays and partnering practice; we know that everyone brings a wide range of reproductive health and reproductive justice experience to this work, and we want the training to be an opportunity for folks to learn from each other, as well.
In order to keep the training a meaningful learning experience, we will be capping the training at 30 individuals. Applications are due no later than midnight of March 25th!
