We have long been admirers of the work of Creative Interventions, an organisation dedicated to addressing violence against women (children and men) and also to questioning and providing community alternatives to the violence and injustice of the US prison system.
Mimi Kim, Rachel Herzing and other members of Creative Interventions have presented their work at narrative events. This team has recently released an online pre-release version of the Creative Interventions Toolkit: A Practical Guide to Stop Interpersonal Violence which aims to assist people who are trying to respond to and prevent violence in their local communities.
This is a complex and challenging topic and one that seems vitally relevant to all of us, as community members and as therapists/community workers.
The Creative Interventions Toolkit can be viewed here.
