Don't Look Away: How to Respond to Troubled Relationships

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

October is Domestic Violence Prevention Month

The Riverside/North Riverside Covenant of Churches will host a domestic violence outreach event on Tuesday, October 24 at the North Riverside Village Commons.  Presenters will include:

Charles Dahm, OP, Archdiocese of Chicago Domestic Violence Outreach
Miriam Ramirez, RN, MacNeal Hospital Trauma Coordinator
Kathleen Detwiler, MD

Presenters will share information and explain how communities and individuals can supportively respond to those in troubled relationships.  Services available and next steps will be emphasized.  Spanish translation services will be available.

The purpose of the forum is to examine strategies based on the best available evidence to help our communities sharpen their focus on prevention activities with the greatest potential to preserve relationship safety.
