Thursday. October 30th at 2:00 PM ET
October is recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and provides the opportunity to shine a light on this often hidden but not so secret problem. Domestic violence/intimate partner abuse is defined as physical, sexual, or psychological harm caused by a current or former partner/spouse.
“Economic Abuse” is an additional and major component of this problem. It is used by abusers to limit and control a partner or spouse’s access to financial resources. Its goal is to keep a partner/spouse financially dependent and unable to leave the relationship. Too often, economic abuse limits victims to choosing between staying in the abusive relationship or facing financial hardship, extreme poverty and homelessness.
This webinar will offer specific tools, methods and insight for addressing the challenges and issues of economic abuse. The goal of this free training session is to help and support everyone who works with (or who is) a victim, survivor, friend, family or colleague of someone experiencing domestic and economic abuse.
Webinar registration is completely free and registrants receive a recording of the webinar via email.
