Join us for a 2-day training for Faith Communities & Leaders

 Communities of faith and their leaders have the potential to play a significant role in helping to prevent and eliminate family violence. This course is designed to help religious leaders, lay leaders and seminarians to:

  • Gain a basic understanding of the complex dynamics of intimate partner abuse and effects on individuals, families and communities
  • Learn about intervention strategies: practices and resources needed to help keep victim/survivors safe, and abusers accountable
  • Explore approaches to the challenging pastoral, theological and spiritual issues that abuse and violence in the family raise
  • Develop strategies for how you and your community of faith can play a critical role in breaking the silence and preventing domestic violence
