Description

We know that in times of uncertainty and unprecedented crisis, the incidences of family violence and abuse increase in our community. In this time of physical distancing, connections are more important than ever. Stay connected to your friends and family, and when needed, support those who are dealing with family violence and abuse. We all have a role to play.

The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter offers a free webinar focused on supporting individuals and families during this time of crisis. Participants 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. In 1 hour you can learn:

  • Different types of abuse

  • How to recognize, respond and refer

  • Barriers victims face

  • Myths and misconceptions

  • Statistics and research around family violence and abuse

The focus of the presentation is to give participants the skills and confidence to recognize and support victims of family violence and abuse during this crisis and beyond.

We can all TAKE A STAND and play an important role in supporting friends and family. The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter is more than a shelter, offering numerous programs and services which help women, children, youth and men impacted by family violence and abuse, as well as family and friends looking to support victims, but don’t know how.
