‘Don’t Date Them’ Presentation
Women and young girls often find themselves in an abusive relationship. These relationships can be damaging to the self esteem and mental health of the woman involved, leaving her feeling: crushed, worthless, depressed, anxious and in some cases suffering post traumatic stress disorder. Men also may find themselves in an abusive relationship.
Unfortunately, although we may formally learn to: drive, play an instrument, or do physics and chemistry, we do not learn how to date safely.
If people can learn to identify the red flags associated with a potential abuser, hopefully they can avoid become involved with them.
The ‘Don’t Date Them ‘ Domestic Violence Prevention Presentation is available to high schools, workplaces, churches and community groups.
The workshop can be tailored to the needs of your group and is delivered on site.
Workshops can vary in duration from one hr to one day according to your needs.
The format can be a lecture or more interactive with small group sharing activities.
