Webinar: Domestic Violence and the Role of the Church
- Wednesday, October 1, 2014
- 12:00 PM–1:00 PM
Domestic violence, or relationship abuse, is a hidden problem with devastating consequences for individuals and families. If not addressed, abuse tends to escalate, leading to physical and sexual violence and to hundreds of deaths each year. Well intentioned, but uninformed, responses may increase the risk of harm. The body of Christ has parts that, because of relationship abuse, are not able to fully function. This webinar is designed to help us understand the problem, so that we can recognize it and respond in practical and effective ways. Please download these handouts (Power & Equality Wheels » and DV Tool for Continuum of Christian Care ») when you register.
