Domestic Violence Prevention Workshop

Join us for transformative workshops on domestic violence prevention.  Churches are not immune to   domestic violence and churches play a vital role in bringing healing to people affected by domestic violence.   Today, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking with impacts such as injury, fearfulness, and post-traumatic stress disorder.  Join us for Biblically based programs to equip pastors, lay leaders, and congregants in responding to domestic violence within the church membership or encountered outside the congregational setting.

Registration is now open.  Registration must be completed by October 31, 2019. 

You can register online below or mail us a check ($10 per participant) to:

CABA, 109 Forts Ferry Road, Latham, NY 12110
