Unconscious Collusion with Perpetrators in Domestic and Family Violence Work
On Thursday 14th November 21 people attended the Unconscious Collusion with Perpetrators in Domestic and Family Violence Work seminar, delivered by Christine Craik, National President of the AASW.
Christine's presentation, based on the results of her PhD research, explored the ways in which workers are often unable to identify the presence of family violence, often unintentionally colluding with the perpetrators, leading to increased risk and silencing of victim/survivors.
Feedback from attendees was this wonderful, challenging and inspiring training is relevant and applicable to a range of work environments, from direct practice, in hospitals and through to legal services.
Thank you to Christine for her presentation and to all the attendees for their active and engaged participation.
