Domestic Abuse – Friday 30th November 2018 10.00am-4.00pm
Supporting clients who are living in abusive relationships can be painful and frustrating. Unless the DA is flagrantly physically violent, many clients do not recognise that what they are living with is domestic violence. Verbal, emotional, financial and sexual abuse chip away at the target’s confidence such that it becomes almost impossible to see a way out. Women and men who are on the receiving end of domestic violence may present for therapy for anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and a whole host of other difficulties which they have not linked with the domestic violence they are enduring. This day will allow participants to explore their own attitudes and beliefs around this difficult subject, as well as share ideas and strategies which have empowered their clients.
