Why Your Team Needs Domestic Violence Awareness Training

Domestic Violence is so much more than broken bones and bruises.


Its about…

Karen, who on her ride to work every day listens to her sister cry about how she is treated by her husband.

It is about Sally who is going through a divorce and is scared to death that her wife is waiting for her in the parking garage.

Its about Mark whose partner calls the office 50 times a day and screams at him at home.

Or Peter, who answers your phone and hears from a client/customer say  “I’m a victim and need help” but Peter doesn’t know what to do.

Karen, Sally, Mark and Peter…they don’t know to do.

They aren’t productive at work (and they aren’t proud of that).

They are annoying the staff with their lateness, days off from work, and inability to focus.

Karen, Sally and Mark, Peter…they are scared to share with anyone for fear of judgement.  They are unsure if your team will support them.
