A Systematic Approach to Partner Violence in Health Care
The mission of the Family Peace Project is to end family violence and promote family peace. The Family Peace Project provides education, training and consultation to citizens, health care professionals, organizations and communities. We are psychologists and community activists who believe that citizens can improve their communities by using the power of individual responsibility, civic action and the democratic process to engage the strengths and resources of our local communities and create local solutions to the challenges we are facing.
Thank you for your interest in ending family violence. Our world wide web resources are a work in progress. What resources are working for you? What additional materials do you need? What challenges are you facing in the settings where you are working? Share your ideas, experiences and resources in our Family Peace Project Discussion Room, or send an e-mail message. The Community Mentor Discussion Room is a place where researchers, educators and health care professionals can talk with survivors of family violence about training and advocacy.
