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
