Salon professionals are in a unique position to recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse in their clients and co-workers. Because of the intimate and nurturing nature of these relationships, salon professionals can often spot signs of domestic violence that otherwise may go unnoticed.
Human Options has partnered with The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) to empower salon professionals to break the cycle of domestic abuse in their communities through the PBA’s
CUT IT OUT®: Salons Against Domestic Abuse training. This free, interactive presentation builds DV awareness by educating and training beauty professionals to recognize warning signs and safely refer clients, colleagues, friends and family to local resources.
Research shows that most domestic violence survivors never call the police or go to a shelter. They may however, confide in someone they can trust and this is why training salon professionals on domestic violence is so important.
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October, Human Options is offering a free 90-minute presentation to interested salons. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance, and the tools necessary to recognize the signs of abuse and safely refer victims to help. Salon professionals can become invaluable and influential community partners in the fight against domestic abuse.
We hope you join us in our fight to end DV.
