Domestic abuse affects at least 25% of all women involved in romantic relationships. And it impacts all sectors of society – work places, health care and child care facilities, civil and criminal justice systems, faith communities, neighborhoods, and of course, individuals and families.
We can all do something to help people affected by abuse – and we can prevent it from happening. If you’d like to get involved but aren’t sure how, we can help.
We offer customized training in many shapes and sizes – from lunch & learns to 30-hour training programs to organization-wide policy and practice development services to workshops and help actually implementing plans.
Give us a call – 207.945.5102 – to talk about how we can work with you or your organization to make a difference in your community.
Here are some of the topics we cover in our domestic abuse training:

Here’s what some participants had to say…
I really liked the interactive exercises. They helped me understand in ways I had never been able to in previous trainings on this topic.
I have been there. I don’t tell people about my experience very often, but the trainer was right on. It felt good to know that my colleagues were hearing what she had to say. I felt validated.
Everyone in my practice should experience this training.
