Digging deeper into the topic of domestic violence, presenters will examine both the perspective of the domestic violence perpetrator as well as victims and survivors. While experiences are hardly a monolith, this seminar hopes to unpack the power, control, and manipulation often used by abusers. Presenters will also examine reasons why victims often choose to stay or return to abusive relationships, despite escalating violence, and ways supporters can help empower individuals to safety. Whether you work directly, or indirectly with victims or perpetrators of violence, this seminar will help you better understand the landscape as well as effective intervention and empowerment strategies.
Mat Klemp, LMSW, Clinical Supervisor at the YWCA, and Holly Wilson, LMSW, Director of Client Services at Safe Haven, will be leading the discussion.
The event is free and open to the public.
