Safety for the Family is the #1 Priority
The best hope for healing for adult and child victims/survivors of family violence is validation for their experiences, and safety from their abusers. The best hope for change for abusers is exposure of their behavior, and meaningful accountability. Kathy Jones, founder of Mother Justice Network, can show you how to achieve both. Even if you don’t know who to believe, SAFETY FOR THE FAMILY – not “neutrality” – should always be your #1 priority, no matter your professional role.
Mother Justice is …
… YOUR ENGAGING SPEAKER.
Domestic abuse and counter-parenting are dry topics. Kathy uses humor and personal experiences to make her events more memorable.
… YOUR CREATIVE BRAINSTORMER.
Family violence poses real-world challenges, and one size rarely “fits all.” Kathy thinks “outside-the-box” for practical solutions that fit your parameters – and the victim’s needs.
… YOUR ENTHUSIASTIC EDUCATOR.
The only ridiculous question is the unasked one. Kathy cares that her engagements leave people better equipped to help any child or adult survivor of abuse, and she welcomes group participation.
