Men Stopping Violence
2785 Lawrenceville Hwy Suite 112
Decatur, GA
In this 8-hour workshop, Men Stopping Violence will address these, and other vexing questions. We will also present our philosophical framework that explores who batters and why, as well as the prevalence and scope of male violence against women in our communities. Next, we will take an in-depth look at tactics of abuse and how to identify them in clients and then discuss the value that referral to intervention services brings to private counselling practices. We’ll end day one by observing our 2-hour batterer intervention class where training participants will see first-hand the depth of work that happens in a batterer intervention class. Participants will then join the Men Stopping Violence training team to process the class the following morning.
