2024-04-14 09:30 2024-04-14 10:30 America/New_York Sunday Forum: “Domestic Violence in the Faith Based Community”

Presented by Dr. Cheryl Chavers & Connie Hoover Domestic violence is a serious moral and spiritual concern. It violates the dignity of human beings and the basic moral principles of all religious faith traditions. Faith communities can play a significant role in providing support for victims of domestic violence and in holding abusers accountable. Spiritual leaders are often the first place a person turns to in times of trouble and turmoil and are in a position to provide counsel, support and safety.  This presentation will shine light on domestic violence, who it impacts, types of abuse, and the impact of domestic violence on spiritual communities. Participants will hear a first-hand account from a survivor of domestic violence, and the Domestic Violence in the Faith Based Community’s S.T.A.R.T. model will be shared as a strategy in addressing domestic violence within spiritual communities.

Dr. Cheryl Chavers &

Domestic violence is a serious moral and spiritual concern. It violates the dignity of human beings and the basic moral principles of all religious faith traditions. Faith communities can play a significant role in providing support for victims of domestic violence and in holding abusers accountable. Spiritual leaders are often the first place a person turns to in times of trouble and turmoil and are in a position to provide counsel, support and safety. 

This presentation will shine light on domestic violence, who it impacts, types of abuse, and the impact of domestic violence on spiritual communities. Participants will hear a first-hand account from a survivor of domestic violence, and the Domestic Violence in the Faith Based Community’s S.T.A.R.T. model will be shared as a strategy in addressing domestic violence within spiritual communities.
