Learn How to Support Victims of Family Violence and Abuse

by Fernando - 0 Comment(s)

Free community workshop to learn how to support victim of family violence.

74% of Albertans report they know someone who has been abused. But many of us don’t know what to say or do to help someone who is living with family violence and abuse. Family, friends, neighbours and co-workers can be a hugely important support to victims of abuse if they feel confident in their skills to support a victim and comfortable bringing the subject up.

This two-hour workshop will build your skills to:

Recognize

All types of abuse, harmful myths and stereotypes, and your role in ending family violence.

Respond

What to say and do to help, what not to say and do so you don't make it worse, how you can be supportive and non-judgmental, how you can stay safe while you help.

Refer

Know the local services and programs that can support your friend, relative, neighbor or co-worker. Connect them to those who can help.

Two dates available:

Thurs. March 13 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

or

Sat. April 26 from 1 pm to 3 pm.

To register for one of the dates please contact sarah@cwes. or 403-539-5315.

Limited spots available, please book ahead.
