DVAM 2014 is Now!

"Get Out" Impact Day 2014 Conference

The Metropolitan Dallas Alumnae Chaper of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and The Theta Alpha Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. presents "Get Out" Impact Day 2014 Conference focused on domestic violence. The event will have 4 adult classes, one men's only class, and one youth focused class for teens 13-17. 
 
The topics to be discussed will be:

  • DNA of an abuser - understanding that abusers come in every ethnicity, gender, age, and economic level
  • Why won't they just leave? - understanding the dynamics that contribute to a victim staying in an abusive relationship
  • What about the children? - understanding the impact of domestic violence on the children
  • What can we do to stop the abuse? -  understanding the role that everyone can play in reducing or ending the instances of domestic abuse

 
The youth session, titled "Love shouldn't hurt," will focus on helping teens to understand what a healthy relationship is and the fact that it should be free from physical, mental and emotional abuse. The Men's only session is titled "You are not alone" and will focus on the men who may be in an abusive relationship, may have been former abusers, or are dealing with the guilt from losing a loved one to domestic violence that they didn't know about.
 
There will also be a domestic violence exhibit on site to honor victims of domestic violence as well as informational tables from resource organizations in the area.
