IS THIS WHAT WE CAN DO TO ELIMINATE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

We are always asking ourselves what we can do to prevent or eliminate domestic violence (DV).  Could the Quincy Solution be the answer?

It makes sense that ending DV requires a legal system that women can use readily to get help, and that takes full legal measures against abusers, right?  Seems reasonable, but for whatever reasons, it doesn’t often work that way.  The Quincy Solution comes from a 1987 study by a suburban Boston judicial district that actually researched what could help eliminate DV, and they based the Quincy Solution upon that research.  They found that in order to be effective against DV, the system had to empower victims and control abusers.  Easy to say, but how do we do that?

Barry Goldstein, a nationally recognized domestic violence author, speaker and advocate will join us Saturday to talk about the Quincy Solution.  He has written several of the leading domestic violence books including Domestic Violence, Abuse and Child Custody co-edited with Dr. Mo Therese Hannah, Representing the Domestic Violence Survivor, co-authored with Elizabeth Liu and Scared to Leave Afraid to Stay.  His newest book is The Quincy Solution: Stop Domestic Violence and Save $500 Billion.

Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about the Quincy Plan and domestic violence.
