Responding to Domestic Violence in Communities of Faith: 2- day training for Religious leaders, Spiritual Activists and All People of Faith

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.
  • Co-Facilitated by CONNECT Co-Executive Directors: Rev. Dr. Sally MacNichol and Quentin Walcott

Thursdays, December 3rd and 10th, 2015

The Effects of Domestic Violence on Children

Date: 
Wed, 11/04/2015 - 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: 
127 West 127th Street Suite 432, Harlem, NY 10027

The Effects of Domestic Violence on Children   

Children exposed to domestic violence  live in constant fear.  Research indicates they are at increased risk for emotional, behavioral, cognitive, academic, and social problems. A disproportionate number of children who are exposed to domestic violence are under the age of eight and are overlooked because of the common myth that they are too young to understand, be affected or won’t remember what happened anyway. 

This workshop led by Flora Colao, LCSW will cover the experience of domestic violence from the perspective of the children who witness it. Participants will gain an understanding of the effect of witnessing violence as well as initial interventions that will help mitigate the negative impact.  

Thursday, November 5, 2015 | 1 - 4 p.m.

Materials Fee: $50
