This quote has always stuck with me. As we begin our first 2 day training for DVSD facilitators and support persons in 2 years, I hope that this idea comes through. When DVSD began 13 years ago, I asked everyone that read about the program to please let me know if there was something in the model that would harm either the survivors or offenders.
13 years later… I am still asking. I do get jitters in my bones and flutters in my heart before each training. For so many years people were trying to figure out what sort of wrong DVSD could do… after 13 years, I feel very confident in our mission… and that the model does not hurt them.
Glad that I am still jittery. That means excitement… or at least that is what I am pretending….
