Description

The South West Sydney Domestic Violence Committee (SWSDVC) acknowledges that Domestic Violence is a human rights issue and does not discriminate regardless of a person’s gender, culture, religion, education, and socio-economic status.

The South West Sydney Domestic Violence Committee invites you to the 3rd Annual Domestic & Family Violence Conference: Resilience, Recovery, Relief.

This Conference embraces influential and inspiring speakers to deliver presentations equipping community workers with the best approaches of supporting community members affected by domestic and Family Violence.

Professor Linda Coates (Canada)
A professor in the department of Psychology at Okanagan College. She is one of the founders of Response-Based Practice, and has published and presented on topics related to violence, social interaction, and language.
Linda has conducted numerous studies demonstrating how language can be used to conceal violence, mitigate perpetrator's responsibility, blame victims, and conceal victim resistance. She pioneered the use of the term unilateral to describe violent interactions, and mutualizing to describe how those unilateral violent actions are misrepresented as mutual.
