Because our focus is on prevention, we firmly believe that education is the key to ending domestic violence. Whether it's emotional, financial or physical abuse, isolation, threats or stalking, abuse has become a significant social issue. Our research shows that this social issue stems from a lack of self-worth in the individuals who abuse AND are abused.
Our immediate focus is to develop an education model to be used in elementary school. We have completed an initial study to learn what middle school students know and understand about self-worth. The findings are guiding our next steps.
For the past several years, we have offered a free a 1-hour, hands-on adult program called “Finding Confidence after Trauma, Drama and Momma.” It teaches people how to identify an incident from their past, reframe the situation and write a positive affirmation that supports healing and moving past the pain. Supporting Aureus now will provide future generations with a foundation of self-worth, thereby reducing the likelihood of abuse.
