Domestic Violence & Religion: Supporting Survivors of Faith

Hosted by: JWI National Alliance to End Domestic Abuse

Survivors and families of faith who experience domestic violence have unique challenges and opportunities in seeking guidance and support. To best serve these marginalized survivors, advocates can benefit from deepening their understanding of this population. This webinar presents a panel of experts from Muslim, Catholic, and Jewish faiths to share ways that faith serves as a resource and a barrier for seeking help and strategies for engaging with faith leadership.

After this training, participants will be better able to:

  • Understand some of the ways faith impacts and victims and survivors of domestic violence.
  • Identify barriers for women of faith to acknowledge violence with her relationship and seeking help.
  • Address these barriers in culturally appropriate ways.
  • Develop a strategy to engage faith leadership as allies.

*This webinar is $25.00 for non-members of JWI*
