Over the course of their lifetime, 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence. We all know someone who has been impacted by domestic violence, and now we can all have a role in supporting individuals to move past those experiences and build safe communities. Insurance brokers, agents, and adjusters who are involved in the details of people’s home and family lives may become aware of abusive situations. Understanding how to recognize domestic violence, respond in a positive and affirming way, and provide information about supportive referral sources empowers us all to build safer communities. Attend this workshop to build practical skills for playing a supportive role in addressing domestic violence.
