Strengthening Mother-Child Relationships as Part of Domestic Abuse Recovery

Undermining mother-child relationships is one of the most destructive tactics used by perpetrators of domestic abuse. Equally, strengthening and repairing mother-child relationships is vital if mothers and children are to recover from domestic abuse and build more positive lives. Many practitioners are aware of the need to rebuild mother-child relationships in the aftermath of domestic abuse, but this can be difficult when separate services tend to be provided for adults and children. This talk will explore how practitioners can help to rebuild mother-child relationships by drawing on mothers’ and children’s strengths, abilities and hopes for the future.

Why Doesn’t She Just Leave?

One of the most frequently asked questions in relation to domestic abuse is ‘why doesn’t she just leave?’.  Leaving a perpetrator of domestic abuse is seen as the ultimate answer and it is one that many of our services focus upon.  Many practitioners feel frustration when a woman experiencing abuse stays with the perpetrator and, where children are involved, child protection is often invoked on the grounds that she is ‘failing to protect’ those children.  But how many women experiencing abuse are still living with their partner?  And does leaving a perpetrator really mean safety?  Furthermore, how easy is it simply to ‘leave’?

Domestic Abuse in Bisexual Relationships

  This seminar is run in partnership with Biandbeyond and Scotland’s LGBT Domestic Abuse Project

Bisexual intimate partner abuse presents a specific challenge to how we have traditionally come to understand domestic violence. People who are bisexual do not tend to conform to the idea that gender or sexuality is simply one or the other. Consequently, without developing a way of understanding domestic violence that is based according to sexuality, bisexual intimate partner abuse has remained unseen.

Engaging With Men Who Abuse Women Partners

Historically professionals dealing with domestic abuse have struggled to engage with men who are abusive to women partners. Research suggests that the reasons for this include fear of challenging men who have been violent, fear of inadvertently increasing risks to the men's partners and a lack of confidence/knowledge in how to work with these men. This course aims to deal with these and other obstacles to engaging with abusive men.
