About the Event
Take a Stand - Feeling safe and supported in the workplace increases productivity and reduces missed work days
Family violence and abuse affects women and men and impacts productivity in the workplace. Very often victims look for support at work as it may be the one safe place away from the violence and abuse. When a person experiencing violence and abuse looks for support, they often receive hurtful even dangerous advice. Knowing how to respond can make the difference in supporting victims and helping them move forward in living a life free of violence and abuse.
Take A Stand” is our initiative to educate and empower individuals to effectively support victims of family violence and abuse. Through this program we offer presentations to organizations and workplaces to learn how to identify family violence and abuse in all its forms, ways to respond compassionately and positively to victims, and how to connect victims to resources.
This presentation covers:
- Different types of abuse
- How to recognize, respond and refer
- Barriers victims face
- Myths and misconceptions
- Statistics and research around family violence and abuse
