To be successful in our mission to end family violence and abuse, we need to fully understand the factors and dynamics affecting this complex social issue.
Within this section, we have included:
- Easy to understand information and statistics to help you understand the magnitude of this vast problem
- How it impacts society from social and financial perspectives
- How to define and identify abuse, clinical and counselling approaches and beliefs held here at the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter
- Impacts on women, children and families, how abusers work and ways to help address family violence and abuse in the community
The Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter is committed to continual learning and development around family violence and abuse and collaborates with educators and professionals within the domestic violence sector to stay abreast of new learnings.
