Early intervention, prevention education, and domestic violence education can interrupt the intergenerational cycle of violence. Every individual in our community must become more aware of how to prevent, intervene and be less tolerant of domestic violence. Our society must hold individuals responsible for their abusive behavior. Through education, A Safe Place strives to create a community where violence is not tolerated or hidden.
Training and education sessions can be provided for any youth, community, or professional group in Lake County.
Topics can include:
* A Safe Place service information
* Myths and statistics surrounding domestic violence
* Dynamics of domestic violence
- power and control
- types of abuse
- red flags
- cycle of violence
- why survivors stay or go back
* How to help: appropriate response and making referrals
