Responding to Domestic Violence in Communities of Faith” will help participants:

    • 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.
