“Identify, Understand and Intervene: Workshop on Domestic Violence and Child Abuse” will provide an overview of domestic violence and child abuse; highlight helpful resources; and provide tools for identifying, understanding and intervening in situations involving abuse.

A recent study commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that one in three women and one in four men in the United States have experienced a form of intimate partner violence in their lifetime. Domestic abuse plagues the church in the same way it does society in general.

Children in homes where domestic violence is present are more likely to be abused, and even if not physically harmed, they may have emotional and behavioral problems. When children are actual victims of abuse, it can take many forms and have devastating effects.
