When was the last time you were filled with hope? How about right now?
As we struggle to better protect battered and sexually abused women and children, communities in the US have successfully reduced domestic violence – dramatically.
And saved millions and millions of dollars.
If the Quincy Solution was adopted in the rest of the country we could save $500 billion! And millions of women and children would sleep at night, knowing they no longer had anything, or anyone, to fear.
Find out, in Barry Goldstein’s important and meticulously-researched book, how Quincy, San Diego and Nashville tackled the problem; and won.
Barry Goldstein has dedicated his career to stopping men’s violence against women and preventing the mental, emotional and physical trauma it inflicts on their children. A passionate and sought-after speaker, Barry’s the author of four other books on domestic violence.
•Domestic violence is not inevitable. The Quincy Solution is based on successful practices in Quincy, Nashville, and San Diego so we know it works.
•The $500 billion in annual savings from the Quincy Solution comes from prevention of illnesses and injuries, reduced crime, and victims reaching their economic potential.
•The Quincy Solution is more than an absence of abuse. Women and children will be safe in their homes and free to reach their potential.
