Safe Communities: Policies and Practices for Interpersonal Violence Prevention

Safe Communities is a process of transformational change in which an institution, group or intentional community commits to developing and maintaining social norms inhospitable to interpersonal violence.

This project is a collaboration with Cindy Beal, M.Div.. Cindy has extensive expertise in policy development, child sexual abuse prevention, group process and human sexuality.

Safe Communities consultancies can include:

  • Development of policies and procedures
  • Leadership coaching
  • Staff training
  • Managing community change processes

Educational topics may include:

  • Interpersonal Violence 101
  • Best Practices
  • Assertive Communication
  • Boundary Setting
  • Handling Difficult People

Safe Communities is best thought of as a residency/collaboration between your agency and the consultants, in which we work together to create a culture of safety.
