REAL Talk is a guide to help us understand and talk openly about domestic abuse in Alberta.

Chances are you are close to or know someone impacted by domestic abuse. Learn to break the cycle of domestic abuse with just a few words.

How to have REAL talk

REAL talk isn’t fancy or complicated, it’s just a moment between two people.

Recognize

Domestic abuse isn’t black and white, there isn’t a clear list of signs to look for. People experience abuse on a spectrum through many different forms of power and control.

Empathize

When someone confides in or shares an experience with you, check in with your gut feeling and believe that person. Your response will affect how that person seeks help again in the future.

Ask

Ask questions that give you a better sense of the situation and how best to support the person experiencing the abuse. You aren’t the expert, try to build a shared understanding.

Listen

Listening means creating space for someone to define their own experience without judgement. Remember it’s not about you.
