Location: Karnes City Columbus Club, 517 E. Calvert, Karnes City, TX 78118

Lunch will be provided at this free training

This training will focus on the agenda, strategy, and tactics employed by domestic abusers. The presenter will explore the what, why, and how of abusive actions, not just through the viewpoint of the offender, but also as experienced by victims/survivors and as observed by those of us who are charged with ensuring that the home is a safe place, rather than a place from which one must flee to simply be safe. An interactive discussion will include the examination of numerous case examples, including a videotaped interview of a domestic abuser turned killer.
