Our goal is to implement our “Prevention is better than cure program” in schools and colleges. If young girls are taught the warning signals of abuse they will be far better equipped to recognize the abusive relationship. It is also imperative that young boys are taught the symptoms and characteristics of how abusers are bred and the damage they create. Recognizing abuse is not enough. Students require a blue print of what defines a healthy relationship.
Given the staggering statistics of how kids who grow up in abusive homes are affected the need for an effective prevention and early intervention program is critical.
Our program has been accepted by the LAPD Newton Division and the California Institution for Women. At the request of the LAPD Newton we have had When Loving Him Hurts translated in Spanish.
