In the Spring of 2010, some of the world’s leading researchers, therapists and advocates came together to answer one question: How can we help children and adults across the globe who have been impacted by Childhood Domestic Violence reach their full potential? We wanted to create ONE SCALABLE program that could help as many people as possible.
Two years later, the Change a Life program was completed. There is no other program like it in the world today. It was built using the most promising practices for working with those who experienced Childhood Domestic Violence.
We developed the program through a partnership with the leading domestic violence research center in the world – the University of Minnesota. It can prepare, qualify, and guide you to step into the life of a child who experienced or is experiencing Childhood Domestic Violence. Your support and hope can help change a child’s life.
The Change a Life Program is a free, interactive,self-administered online program that will give you unique insight into a child’s experience with Childhood Domestic Violence. It will also teach you basic support and safety planning skills while preparing you to act on behalf of a child in need. The step-by-step training process is an easy way to learn the simple things and key messages that can foster resiliency. When you know the right words to say to a child, it can only take one sentence to change the course of their life.
