ABOUT THIS EVENT

Register for parts 1 and/or 2 of the series.

We can’t stop domestic violence if we don’t stop the perpetrators and hold them accountable. This workshop draws from both research and clinical experience to reveal the underlying tactics, behaviors, and attitudes of men who batter women. We will look at the complexity of the battering pattern, with a particular eye to understanding how the abuser manages to be a tyrant at home while escaping detection by the outside world. We will then review research and case illustrations to show best practices for safe and effective interventions with batterers to promote family safety and hold the offender accountable.

Session #2 (90 minutes)
Healing and Recovery in Children Exposed to Domestic Violence

This presentation guides professionals and other community members in best approaches for supporting recovery in children who have been exposed to violence at home. Initial topics include building safety, assessing the impact on the child, assessing the impact on the mother-child relationship, and assessing the impact on family functioning. Next, we examine ways to help children heal emotionally through processing their experiences verbally, using expressive therapies, and using group counseling. The importance of empowerment work with children is examined, with an emphasis on values education, development of critical-thinking skills, and children’s participation in safety planning.
