Help for violent women
Stopping Violence Dunedin (SVD) manager Lynne Baird said the organisation received at least one phone call a week from women wanting to do something about their violent tendencies.
Feedback from probation officers and Women’s Refuge reiterated a need for help targeted at women.Â
I came across this and thought it is interesting to note:
In response to this, SVD created a women’s education programme, which will be trialled in Dunedin next month.Among other things, it will explore patterns of behaviour and highlight tools for living a life free of violence and abuse.
The sessions cover building self-esteem, setting safe boundaries, developing good communication skills and the impact of society on women.It will also focus on the impact of violence on children and partners.
