Cut It Out

Cut It Out

Salon professions are in a unique situation where they work intimately with men and women in a comfortable environment where intimacy and trust are often built over time. Many victims of sexual and domestic violence outright disclose their abuse to their hair dresser. Other times salon workers notice signs of abuse on their customers, signs such as bruising or cuts, but do not recognize these signs for what they are. Cut It Out is a program of the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund dedicated to mobilizing salon professionals and others to fight the epidemic of domestic and sexual abuse in communities across the United States. This unique training offered by Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands staff to salon professionals will help the salon workers to recognize signs of abuse in their clients and inform them of where to safely refer victims for help. You can find more information about the nationally recognized Cut It Out program at their website.
