DAIS works throughout the Dane County community to raise awareness of the impact and root causes of Domestic Violence (DV) and Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). We provide a variety of community education presentations and workshops to any audience looking to learn more about different topics related to Domestic Violence and Intimate Partner Violence. Audiences can range from faith-based groups, to identity organizations, to civic organizations. These community education presentations and workshops include topics such as, but not limited to; how to identify signs of abuse, how to support a survivor, an overview of DAIS services and how we can help, and community resources. These presentations are offered at no cost.
DAIS is happy to work with your group to customize your experience. We aim to tailor each presentation to best fit the needs of each group we speak with. Each presentation, workshop, or training can be fully customized for your group.
DAIS presentations are also designed to meet the needs of all learners. Each workshop utilizes different learning styles and uses a combination of individual reflection, partner work, group work, discussions, videos, simulations, survivor stories, music, etc. to engage all participants. The age and cognitive development of participants is also foundational to the development of our educational offerings.
