Working with Sexual Abuse Victims and their Perpetrator Behaviours (One Day Workshop: Commissioned by Kinergy Bristol, co-facilitated with Kim Etherington)

This workshop explores our attitudes, feelings, beliefs and ways of working with victims of sexual abuse who are acknowledging and wanting to address their abusive behaviours. Children who are abused are exposed to the role and behaviours of both victimhood and perpetration: in order to survive the child/person may identify with one or both of these roles and, like most early coping strategies, this can become a problem in itself.

There will be an examination of the theories and practice issues with this client group in a safe environment, working sometimes in the whole group or in pairs/small groups. Delegates be invited to consider their own responses to this difficult work and learn some ways to take care of themselves as they work with clients.
