Tackling Domestic Violence & Abuse In Faith Communities

24 Jun 2014 - 9:00am - 4:30pm

This event is creatively geared to empower faith communities to respond effectively and efficiently to  cases that occur in their environments. 

The conference is ideal for multi-faith leaders, members of multi-faith communities, statutory service workers, academics, survivors of DVA, politicians, and professionals who work with victims and perpetrators of DVA.

The aim is to enhance understanding on the plight and struggles of victims of DVA in faith communities, which is normally worsened by untold difficulties they experience. Furthermore, they are prepared to educate on how to work with perpetrators of DVA, who are the key agents of DVA. 

They will also educate on the impact of DVA on children in faith communities, and the challenges they face. Expect to leave equipped and educated on how to assist adult and child victims in faith communities, while working effectively with perpetrators.  

The vision is to see faith communities transforming into fortresses of refuge and practical resources for adult and child victims and survivors, in a manner that does not compromise their safety and restoration.
