Concluding Remarks

As we complete the introductory course on Family Violence, identification and prevention; ask yourself what steps you would take if you witnessed abuse either within your own family or that of a friend? How would you respond, would you know who to call? Would you feel guilty for making that call? We will conclude the discussion sections with these questions, be prepared to respond to a roundtable discussion the final week.
