Workshop March 14-15 for women’s group leaders
The Neighborhood Place of Puna will host a women’s group facilitator workshop on Thursday and Friday, March 14-15, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the conference rooms on the ground floor of the Hawaii State Building in Hilo.
Through exercises and dialogue, participants in this workshop will explore what they can do to bring women together, end horizontal hostility and create true social change.
The workshop will be facilitated by Jill Abernathy, who has worked for 26 years with the Duluth Domestic Abuse Intervention Programs as a women’s advocate, women’s group facilitator and mentor. She is an international trainer, having trained professionals in the battered women’s movement using Duluth Model curricula.
The workshop is open to women who are interested in forming and facilitating women’s support groups in their community.
The workshop costs $25, which will help Neighborhood Place of Puna pay the cost of hosting the workshop. Space is limited. Register in advance.
