One important goal of the DVCC is PREVENTION.
The immaturity and inexperience of many teens can make it hard for them to spot the signs of a dangerous relationship. They are new to interpersonal relationship communication skills and sometimes don’t know how to express their strong and ever-changing emotions effectively. By teaching them how to interact in a healthy and respectful way, we seek to help them understand the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships. In addition, we’re helping kids who are living with DV in their family home learn how to get help and break the cycle of violence in the future.
PREVENTING abuse before it becomes an engrained characteristic is key to reducing violence in our community.
