Our program has staff
available to offer trainings, workshops, and presentations for organizations on
the services that we provide. Specific workshops identify the common myths
regarding domestic violence, the power and control wheel, the cycle of abuse,
the effects of domestic violence on children, and the signs to look for. We
also offer ways that you can help if you suspect a friend or relative is in an
abusive relationship. We offer programs specifically addressing ways that the
clergy can help, teen dating violence, Hands Are Not For Hitting, and the
nationally recognized CUT IT OUT Program that is presented to
professional salon workers to assist their clientele.
St. Bernard Battered Women’s Program, Inc. has brochures that are
distributed throughout the area. These can be provided upon request for
public display at your business, community event, or mailings. Just call
our Outreach Advocate at 504-277-3178 or email us at DeanoBWP@aol.com
with your request.
We have trained staff
available to staff booths at events such as a school or job fair as well as
health fairs to educate community members on our services and how to access
them. See Community Events for ways to help us provide for the needs of the individuals
whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence.
