SHE (Support Help & Empowerment) are running a workshop on Family Violence: Beyond the obvious, revealing coercive control and why you need to know
This workshop is suitable for people working in health and human services and promotes a nuanced understanding of family violence beyond legal definitions and overtly abusive behaviours. Most family violence is not recognised as “violent” which acts as a barrier for people who are experiencing abuse, to seek help and intervention.
The workshop aims to;
- Increase knowledge of the complex nature of family violence and abuse.
- Understand what coercive control is and why it is hard to recognise.
- Address social tolerance towards family abuse.
