DVA to challenge and defeat it
Come and join me in this new way in delivering CPD online over two weeks on the 1st and 8th of October. Contact www.onlinevents.co.uk to book your place.
Domestic violence and abuse is a common aspect of the counselling process. In this extended workshop, we look at how to identify DVA, how to work with it safely, and how to help the injured party to move to safety. It’s not an easy thing to work with the complexities of DVA, and it’s hard to remain impartial from our emotions when clients are describing their abusive life. The first step is becoming aware that DVA is a feature of the work with the client; this workshop will show you how to do this.
The next step is to help the client understand they are in an abusive relationship - denial is a common theme in this work. The last part is to be able to help the client journey to a safe place and lead a non-abusive life. Join me in looking at all these things and become more aware and better placed to help clients through it.
