Batterers Are Not Born They Are Socialized

Batterers Are Not Born They Are Socialized (Virtual Training)

Batterers are not born, they are socialized into a culture of male dominance and patriarchy against women. This training will focus on the socialization of men by examining the social norms, culture and traditional images of manhood that has created an environment that supports, tolerates and often encourages men's violence against women. During the workshop providers will gain insight into the construct of sexism and develop skills to challenge privileges and entitlements given to men.

2) Discuss the dark side of masculinity.
