LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - The Lock Haven University Campus Violence Prevention Program will host a free training workshop on “Workplace Responses to Domestic Violence.” Members of the public are invited to participate. The training will be held on Thursday, September 23, 2010 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in HP 105 Greenburg Auditorium. Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and
work in Pennsylvania.
Attendance is limited to the first 60 people who respond.
The program is comprised of 3 modules and is based on the film “Telling Amy’s Story.” http://telling.psu.edu/
The first section of the training provides information about the dynamics of domestic violence, including the cycle of violence and the power and control wheel. This section addresses questions such as “why doesn’t she leave” and “how would I know if a coworker is in an abusive relationship?”
The second section of the program is a case study of a local domestic violence homicide based on the fatality review and criminal investigation following the victim’s death.
The final section of the training addresses domestic violence in the workplace.
After completing this training, participants will have an increased understanding of domestic violence and how it affects victims. Participants will also know how to be supportive of a victim and where to refer him/her for professional assistance.
