Do any of these sound like you?
Maybe you’re a current student or recent graduate who wants to learn about domestic violence so you can get your first job in the domestic violence sector and start making a meaningful difference in people’s lives.
Or maybe you already have a career in a different sector, but you know some of your clients are victims of domestic violence and besides knowing that “DV is bad”, you don’t really understand the ins and outs of it all, and you want to be sure you aren’t unintentionally victim blaming or causing your clients further trauma.
Maybe you have a friend who is experiencing domestic violence and you just can’t understand why she chooses to stay with someone who continues to abuse her, despite clearly suffering from it.
Or maybe you already work in the domestic violence sector, but you need a refresher, or you’ve never actually had the opportunity to receive training in domestic violence before, and you sometimes have trouble with really being able to understand why she keeps returning to her abuser.
