The purpose of this training is to provide you with tools to engage men of all ages in the prevention of DVSA. In this own words, Dr. Heisterkamp describes the training as:
"The training will be framed under the umbrella of "leadership" and how to engage and support men in challenging and confronting the root causes of men's violence against women.
We'll explore the different types of abuses that exist, infuse active bystander theory and education, create an open dialogue and discussion that challenges thinking around DV/SA, as well as demonstrate concrete responses and actions that serve to prevent incidents of gender violence and/or harassment from occurring. "
We hope to see you on Wednesday, December 14, from 8:00-11:30!
