Domestic Abuse Webinar: Cycle of Violence

Posted on February 24, 2021 by Published by

The Domestic Violence Awareness Outreach at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, Elk Grove Village, is hosting a free webinar this Sunday, 2/28 at 7:00 pm, titled, “The Cycle of Violence.”

Each year, the Holy Father asks for our prayers for a specific intention each month. For the month of February, Pope Francis’ intention is: “We pray for women who are victims of violence, that they may be protected by society and have their sufferings considered and heeded.”  As St. John Paul II stated in his encyclical, Evangelium Vitae, “Society as a whole must respect, defend and promote the dignity of every human person, at every moment and in every condition of that person’s life.”

This virtual presentation will be an overview of domestic violence—which is, unfortunately, on the rise during the pandemic. The conditions created by COVID-19—unexpected time at home, unemployment and financial insecurity, anxiety and stress—are the same conditions known to aggravate domestic violence.

The presenter, Aimee Dinschel has over 15 years of experience as a social worker.  She has worked in programs providing counseling and support to survivors of interpersonal violence. She will inform attendees about the power and control dynamics of abusive relationships, the cycle of violence, and review healthy relationship dynamics.
