“Safe Town” is a powerful experiential learning activity. It is a simulation designed to incorporate various modes of learning: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. It is intended to connect the head and heart of the participant so that a deeper level of insight and understanding of domestic violence is attained. Safe Town will allow each participant to have a uniquely individual experience. Each experience will build opportunities for powerful discussion and reflection as we process the simulation individually and together as a group.
The afternoon session will include the coverage of a comprehensive Awareness Manual and discussion with local advocates. During this session we will discuss various topics including: Who are the Victims and the Batterers? What are the effects on the children? What can we say and do to help? Where are the resources?
“Safe Town” is presented by the State of Oklahoma Department of Human Services in cooperation with the Oklahoma Coalition against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
