Our Trainings

Break the Cycle provides trainings, workshops, presentations and lectures to educate, equip, and empower communities to support young people experiencing dating abuse.

Our training programs benefit from nearly two decades of experience in dating abuse prevention and intervention. We believe that trainings should be informed by the youth we work with, based in evidence, outcome oriented and inclusive. All of Break the Cycle's trainings are participatory and developed using theories of adult learning and holistic well-being. 

Each training program can be adjusted to meet the needs, time limitations and expertise of your group. Our experts are also available for panel presentations, keynote speeches, webinars, customized trainings and individual consultations. To request a training and learn about our sliding-scale fees, please call us at 310.286.3383 or email us at scolome@breakthecycle.org.
