Read Reflect Respond: Religious Reflections on Abuse
This series asks pastors to read a short article, reflect on its message and impact, and to respond to other e-learners and group facilitators interacting with the same content material.
||Introduction to Domestic Violence
This series provides accurate, up-to-date, training to enable religious leaders to become aware of the prevalence and severity of abuse and to learn of best practices in terms of response.
||Linking to the Literature
For the religious leader who has already received training on issues of domestic violence, this series is meant as continuing education to engage with those topics currently being discussed in the scholarly academic community. It is more advanced in terms of content and engagement.
This series focuses on bridge building—linking the community of faith to the wider community. Here we will reflect on paving the pathway from the steeple to the shelter, how to work together in a collaborative fashion, and understanding the unique role of the religious professional in an overall community response to abuse.

||Stories of Hope and Inspiration After Violence
This series provides real stories of men and women, impacted by violence in their personal lives, who have been part of our research projects.
