Personal Safety and Empowerment Project

Personal Safety and Empowerment Project

This is a specialized Personal Safety workshop designed for women who have experienced domestic violence. Women who take these Workshops have an opportunity to join together and learn ways to increase their safety.

The goal is to address the specific concerns and challenges faced by women survivors of domestic/partner abuse and provide them with tools to increase their safety in different settings. There is also a component that focuses on various emotional or relationship patterns that can increase the risk of future abuse. Healthier, alternative responses and coping strategies are presented in the workshop and in the reference manual.  It also covers in-depth information about technological advances in finding persons or cell phone tracking, etc. If you are a woman who has experienced abuse, call WISE regarding our Personal Safety Empowerment Workshops to make a booking or to explore the potential benefits to your life.
