 "The Department of Health and Social Services, in collaboration with the NWT Coalition Against Family Violence, has developed a social marketing campaign aimed at changing attitudes and beliefs about family violence. The campaign is entitled “What Will It Take?” and is geared towards bystanders - people who witness family violence. When people are bystanders to family violence they often have an opportunity to step up and make a positive difference but aren’t sure what to do.    This campaign is designed to give the public the confidence and skills they need to respond to situations of family violence.

The “What will it take?” workshop is aimed at empowering NWT residents to help reduce family violence and make their communities safer. This workshop is designed to build awareness, sensitize audiences, and provides in-depth information on being an active bystander and allows participants time to practice the skills they could need.

Topics covered include:

A “What will it take?” workshop toolkit is available in a complete ready-to-use package. Each package includes a DVD that features NWT residents talking about what it is going to take to reduce family violence, a facilitator’s guide equipped with facilitator’s script, workshop activities, handouts and evaluation forms.
If you are interested in facilitating a “What will it take?” workshop, please email Family Violence Prevention Consultant at ."
