August 16-19, 2016, DAWN is offering an intensive training for those interested in knowing how to prevent or de-escalate interpersonal/community violence. The presentation is based on a national, evidence-based program and has proven to reduce incidents of violence in communities where the information, responsibility, and accountability are shared. At the end of the four days, attendees will be qualified to teach what they have learned to others in shorter, more targeted ways, such as employee groups, neighborhoods, social circles and with family members.
