Cut It Out
Wednesday, October 24, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PDT)
Santa Cruz, CA
CUT IT OUT is a program of the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund dedicated to mobilizing salon professionals and others to fight the epidemic of domestic abuse in communities across the United States. CUT IT OUT builds awareness of domestic abuse through awareness materials to be displayed in salons, the Adopt-a-Shelter initiative to involve salons in helping local domestic violence agencies, and training salon professionals to recognize warning signs and safely refer clients to resources.
WHY THE SALON PROFESSIONAL? The relationship between a client and a salon professional is usually based on trust built up over time. Because of the intimate and nurturing nature of the relationship, a salon professional—who often sees a client on a regular basis—can often spot signs of physical abuse that others may never see. A change in a client’s behavior can also be easily recognized by a salon professional.
The educational component of the program consist of a one-hour seminar that is targeted to cosmetology schools, salons, continuing education classes, and similar venues. The seminar will provide basic information about domestic violence and specific information about how to respond to a client who might be a victim of abuse.
