EDUCATION: PRESENTATIONS AND SEMINARS
The best way to help a survivor is to be there, listen without judgment and believe her. Each survivor’s experience is different and only she knows about it. Trust her emotions and decisions.
ENDING THE ABUSE AND SUPPORTING ITS SURVIVORS
The victims and survivors of domestic abuse are our friends, family, neighbors, classmates, co-workers and their children. They also are our employers, supervisors, clients, patients, employees, etc.
This is a Call to the Community
This is a call to those of you who work in the health care system, as well as lawyers, and the members of the judiciary system, employers, co-workers, family and friends, schoolmates and roommates, neighbors, and the community at large.
The key to eradicating domestic violence is to create a united effort among key societal sectors to establish industry-specific strategies and tactics that address the problem. Free From Abuse offers Domestic Violence education in Oregon.
"PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION TO ENDING THE ABUSE AND PROTECTING THE HEALTH OF ITS VICTIMS IS TO IDENTIFY AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE ABUSE".
