About the Event
Domestic Violence: What to Know, Say and Do
Presented by: Jo-Anne Dusel, Provincial Association of Transition Houses and Services of Saskatchewan (PATHS)
Domestic violence impacts everyone in a family, including pets. Unfortunately, many people aren’t aware of the warning signs of abuse and are in long-term relationships before they realize what is happening. It can be difficult to know how to get out or to ask for help. It is also difficult to know how to support someone who is living with abuse. This presentation will cover warning signs and risk factors, statistics on prevalence and why it can be difficult to get out of abusive situations, the link between abuse of people and their pets, and how to find resources near you.
The One Health Education Committee helps improve the quality of life of animals and humans by providing education for animal welfare and human service professionals. The 4-part Violence Link Webinar Series explores the complex relationship between animal abuse and violence towards people.
