Thu. 18 May 2017, 9:30 am – 1:00 pm AEST
Making Sense of Grieving within the Context of Domestic Violence
This is an introductory workshop that will provide a reflective space to explore your ideas about grief and loss within the context of domestic violence.
How we think of grieving and loss impacts on how we work with people who leave a domestic violence relationship and trying to make sense of their sadness, their relief, their pain….love….?
For the context of family violence - What differences are made by thinking about grief as a private illness and a psychological process?
These sessions will provide professional development in a range of areas with the aim to support participants in developing their ethics, theories and practice in their work. These areas include working with a feminist lens, understanding and unpacking commonly used models and frameworks, and deepening our understanding of working with victim-survivors and perpetrators of family violence.
We are also open to topic suggestions, as the ShantiWorks’ team wants this training to be relevant and useful to the community.
