What makes our programs different?
What happens when you combine a violence prevention specialist and a SWAT detective? A very unique and powerful program for college students, delivered in a creative and interactive format, that will give them the information and skills they need to avoid and overcome from abusive relationships, and create and maintain healthy relationships with themselves and others. Programs are user friendly, and can be used in co-ed and single sex audiences. Karen Addison and Andrew Kirshbaum have worked closely with college students focusing on the issues of sexual assault, domestic abuse, and healthy relationships with a combined experience of over 20 years!
