Family Violence: A Workshop Manual for Clergy and Other Service Providers.
Fortune, Marie M.; Hormann, Denise
This workshop manual is an education and training resource tool for the religious community, both individuals and groups, working to mobilize resources in response to sexual and domestic violence in rural areas. The first section presents an approach to education and training on family violence (goals; where to begin, how to proceed, and why; cautions for workshop design; a discussion of values and principles); an outline of workshop goals and objectives; and tips for workshop planning and workshop leaders. Section 2 presents models for a 1-day workshop (focusing primarily on spouse battering), and for a 3-day workshop (focusing on spouse abuse, child abuse, and religious issues and local strategies). The format for the models consists of time recommendations, content and procedures, and materials needed for each area of content and procedure. In addition to the two models, information on general public presentations is included to aid local planning committees or task groups in preparing their presentations. Sample presentations and commentaries for a 1-day workshop on topics including a response to family violence, the person who batters, victims of spouse abuse, the incest offender, non-offending parents of incest victims, and commentaries on religious and rural issues in family violence are also provided. The appendix contains descriptions of six successful rural family violence programs, including contact people for further information; an annotated bibliography with information on incest, spouse abuse, religious issues, and other resources; a questionnaire on family violence; workshop evaluation forms; sample brochure and registration form; and reprints of four articles on domestic violence.
