How To Spot a Dangerous Man Before You Get Involved – Workshop with Sandra L. Brown, M.A.

What is a dangerous man? Most women would answer: one who is physically violent. But abusive behavior is often more insidious. Men who want mothers, not partners, who prey on lonely, passive women, who are mentally ill, addicted, or emotionally unavailable, or who won’t go away when asked to leave all fall into this dangerous category. In this workshop attendees will learn:

  • How to take responsibility for their own safety
  • How to choose men wisely
  • How not to make the same mistake twice
  • Red flags of a dangerous man
  • Stories of women’s successes and failures
  • Safe ways to get out of hazardous relationships
  • Tools to cultivate positive and healthy relationships

When: Tuesday, October 27, 2009; 9:30am-4:00pm
Where: Durham Regional Hospital Auditorium, 3643 N. Roxboro Street, Durham, NC 27701
Seating is limited. Please register online at http://www.durhamcrisisresponse.org/ or call 919-403-9425
