Domestic Violence 101
Do you know the warning signs of intimate partner violence and what causes battering? Would you like to know how to help someone who is in an abusive relationship? If your company, civic group, school or church would like to schedule a presentation to learn the answers to these questions, please email PADV's Vice President of Prevention and Outreach at [email protected].
Domestic Violence in the Workplace
Since statistics reveal that one in four women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime and, as of 2014, women have been estimated to make up 46.8% of the U.S. workforce, there is a likelihood that every business will have to address this issue among their employees at some point. PADV's Domestic Violence in the Workplace presentation will provide a general overview of domestic violence, the different types of abuse, the barriers that prevent victims from leaving abusive relationships and how intimate partner violence can affect a place of business. To schedule a presentation, please email PADV's Vice President of Prevention and Outreach at [email protected].
Teen Dating Violence
