October was Domestic Violence Awareness Month. You can watch this video of a webinar, “Domestic Violence: Identifying and Responding to Intimate Partner Abuse,” offered by the Center for Family Care of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The webinar featured Paulette Geanacopoulos, LMSW, National Philoptochos’ Director of Social Work, and Rev. Fr. Chrysostomos Gilbert, Proistamenos of Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in New York City.
Do you know what to say to a woman you think is being abused or has confided in you that she is being abused? These questions and more were answered in this recorded webinar.
