Workshop: Domestic Violence 102: In Her Shoes

09:30 am - 10/13/2016

@ Brentwood Darlington Community Center

7211 SE 62nd Ave
Portland OR  97206-7564



Domestic Violence 102: In Her Shoes will review domestic violence (DV) & use the In Her Shoes tool to give attendees a deeper understanding of what survivors face in an abusive relationship. Discussions will focus on dispelling DV myths & refuting the “why doesn’t she just leave” mentality by exploring barriers to leaving. The importance of practicing self-care & recognizing vicarious trauma will also be highlighted.

Objectives:
* Take part in an interactive learning activity called In Her Shoes that gives participants a glimpse at the day-to-day experience of a woman surviving domestic violence. Use this tool to better understand the effects of abuse & abuser tactics.
* Discuss myths & facts of domestic violence and barriers to leaving an abusive relationship.
* Explore options for survivors.
* Learn about vicarious trauma & discuss the importance of self-care.
