Understanding Domestic Violence workshop Wed., Oct. 26

In Their Shoes: Understanding Domestic Violence, PUB 9208
Wed., Oct. 26: 12:30-1:30 p.m.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month – help raise awareness about domestic violence and join in our efforts to end it.

The Counseling Center will facilitate an interactive, scenario-based training where participants move, think, and experience the lives of people impacted by domestic violence.

Participants will make choices about their character’s relationships and move through the scenario by reading about interactions with their partner, family, friends, counselors, law enforcement, and others.

The development of this training was funded by the parents of Dayna Fure – murdered by her ex-boyfriend on May 24, 2004, just before she was to graduate from Stanwood High School – to invest in the lives of others and to turn their grief into action.

WEAR PURPLE – the color of Domestic Violence Awareness Month – during the month of October and use this as a way to tell others why ending domestic violence is important to you.
