Working With All Affected
Family violence occurs in every community and culture, and it has profound effects on every person involved. This workshop examines different forms of violence within family relationships, including psychological, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Assessment areas will be reviewed to help understand the impact of violence on individuals, relationships, and communities. Intervention strategies for working with those who perpetrate violence, as well as those who are abused, will be provided. The goal for these interventions is to move beyond shame and hurt to the restoration of relationships and the prevention of further violence. Participants will learn to promote safety with children, adults, and in relationships.
