From the Founder and Board Chairperson...
I am pleased to welcome you to the new Women Against Violence website. Since 1999, Women Against Violence has provided violence prevention, education, and recovery services to women and their families in New York City.
In order to stop the cycle of violence, we need to not only empower women to avoid and recover from abusive relationships, but we also reach out to children to catch any behavior issues early-on, that could develop into more serious problems later. Our parenting groups, child play therapy groups, and creative arts therapy programs strive to stop the cycle of violence in the families, giving parents and children the tools to stay free of abusive behavior. Please take some time to look through our website and the services that we offer.
To meet our goal of educating women, we offer a variety of workshops and groups in Brooklyn. If you are interested in having one of our qualified staff of certified social workers and psychologists speak to your clients, parents or children, please feel free to send us an email that describes the audience, the topic that you would like addressed, your location and time-frame for the presentation.
Please also email or call us if you or someone you know is in crisis, and needs counseling services. We will do our best to help you find someone you can talk to.
Yours in health,
Nicoletta Pallotta, MD, LCSW
