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 gain a basic understanding of the complex dynamics of intimate partner abuse and effects on individuals, families and communities, learn about intervention strategies, explore approaches to the challenging pastoral, theological and spiritual issues raised by abuse and violence in the family, and develop strategies for how you and your community of faith can play a critical role in breaking the silence and preventing domestic violence. 

This course is designed to help religious leaders, spiritual activists, and all people of Faith 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
