Prevention and Training 

Violence is a serious public health problem. People in all stages of life are affected by it. They might survive violence but suffer physical, mental, and or emotional health problems. It is important for people to understand trauma, how it affects victims’ response to support and to avoid re-traumatization by creating safe spaces for victims. Let’s empower victims and the community together! 

 

Sexual violence and other forms of violence is not inevitable; together we can help prevent it. There are many strategies and approaches to preventing violence. Victim Services Center provides prevention education programs and training on topics ranging from child sexual abuse, sexual assault and harassment to elder abuse and trauma-informed response. Programs and training are offered to a variety of audiences and can be customized to meet your needs.
