Domestic Violence Services hosts workshop on psychological abuse, stalking

BHcare’s The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services (UCDVS) will host a workshop about psychological and emotional abuse, stalking and how technology interfaces with domestic violence.

The workshop on Monday, Sept. 30, will be held at Anthony’s Ocean View in New Haven. The cost of the workshop is $95 for the public and $65 for students. The fee includes lunch. Continuing education and training credits are available.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month and an opportunity to raise awareness in the community about healthy relationships, change attitudes that support violence, and recognize that domestic violence can be prevented.

Best-selling author to speak

The workshop will feature author Leslie Morgan Steiner. Her 2009 memoir about surviving domestic violence, “Crazy Love,” was a New York Times bestseller, People Pick, Book of the Week for The Week magazine, and subject of the first TED Talk by a domestic violence survivor.

Other speakers include Mark Wynn, veteran police officer devoted to ending family violence; and Hema Khan, program attorney for the Stalking Resource Center at the National Center for Victims of Crime.
