Outreach

Early intervention, prevention education, and domestic violence education can interrupt the inter-generational 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.

Education sessions can be provided for any youth, community, or professional group in Lake County, the Chicagoland area, and southern Wisconsin.

Topics can include:

  • A Safe Place service information
  • Myths and statistics surrounding domestic violence
  • Dynamics of domestic violence, including power and control, types of abuse, red flags, the cycle of violence, and why survivors stay or go back
  • How to help: appropriate response and making referrals

Presentations are modified to be age appropriate and meet the needs of various audiences.

Education and training sessions offered by A Safe Place are free of charge, however donations of any item or amount are appreciated.
