Abusive Relationship Informational Display

Continuing through Friday, Oct. 7, visit the Central Mall to view the Abusive Relationship Informational Display. This interactive display illustrates attributes of an abusive relationship, the different types of relationship abuse, warning signs, and the cycle of abuse. Since this topic can be distressing, the Coalition of Family Harmony will be tabling throughout the week from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Central Mall for anyone to reach out to for support.

In addition, Intercultural Services and the Coalition for Family Harmony held Bystander Intervention and Technology Abuse workshops to teach and inform attendees on how to de-escalate and respond to difficult situations.
