Join us for our NEW FORMAT Fall 2016 Understanding Domestic Violence: Essentials and Intersections Training.

We call all social and human service advocates, workers, organizers, healers, and changemakers to this cornerstone training.

This course will focus on the different forms and tactics of abuse, and the resulting dynamics that get created, prevention and effective intervention practices.  As someone working in communities in NYC, understanding the intersections between intimate partner violence, health, and social justice will allow you to be more effective in helping people suffering from abuse and seeking safety.  

This course is a prerequisite for Understanding Men who Batter & Abuse, Women’s Empowerment & other CONNECT courses.
