Hair Stylists Trained to Detect Domestic Violence

Hair salons across the country are training their workers to recognize signs of domestic abuse through CUT IT OUT, a program of the Professional Beauty Association.

Hair Salons Work to Cut Out Domestic Violence- http://www.everydayhealth.com/womens-health/hair-salons-work-to-cut-out-domestic-violence-5188.aspx?xid=aol_eh-news_8_20131028_&aolcat=HLT&icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl25%7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D398976

This is really great and is something I hadn't thought of before.  An abused wife may not go to the doctor but chances are she'd go to a salon.  With the right training, stylists may be able to help detect the signs of abuse.  Anyone ever been through a course like this before?
