Janine Latus is a dynamic and engaging speaker on the spectrum of sexual assault and intimate partner violence. She has told her story to hundreds of audiences, from the United States military to universities, high schools and colleges, she leaves audiences haunted by her insights. She has helped shelters and social service agencies raise hundreds of thousands of dollars, has helped corporations create a safer environment by teaching them how to recognize the symptoms of abuse, and has served as part of a team intent on improving the climate within military structures.
Janine uses her own heart-breaking story to illustrate the red flags of abuse, to help audience members recognize them in their own lives and in those of the people around them, to intervene or ask for help, to break free or help others to do so, and then to build a life of respect and freedom from fear. Her talks are part story, part strategy, based on the Duluth Power & Control Wheel and full of practical action items. But because they are built on a story, they resonate long after everyone has left the session room.
