This presentation is intended to give a basic understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse. You can utilize the handouts, suggestions in the presenters notes, and community workers to create a more in-depth understanding.
Suggested key note speakers would be therapists that specialize in domestic violence, or educators/representatives from your local domestic abuse agencies.
Use this slide for introduction. Introduce yourself, your agency and where this information was obtained. Explain the purpose for presentation: Awareness, education, call to action. Be sure to also acknowledge that domestic violence is a difficult topic to present, as well as to hear about. It is painful to recognize abusive behavior in friends, jarring to realize that abuse may be occurring in your social circles and communities.
The handouts that can be used with this presentation are found on the community education page. They are; Myths About Domestic Violence, Statistics, Definitions of Abuse, Dynamics of Domestic Violence, Compelling Reasons, Guide to Family and Friends
