Brisbane Seminars: Project Plan to Empowerment

Brisbane Seminars: Project Plan to Empowerment

Author and domestic violence survivor Ricky Hunter is holding “Project Plan to Empowerment” workshops about domestic violence. I posted about Ricky and her searing experiences last year.

What’s covered

Ricky explores at a deep personal level what it means to be a survivor of intimate partner abuse and torture as she exposes the labels of disempowerment and illegitimate shame.

Attendees will workshop Ricky’s Project Plan to Empowerment and receive their own personal templates including river mapping for clients that have special needs. The workshops shed more light on the following complex questions:

  • What is Intimate Partner Abuse and its long term health outcomes?
  • Why don’t women just leave?
  • Why me?
  • What is the relationship between illegitimate shame and abuse?
  • What is the relationship between animal abuse and domestic abuse?

Who should attend?

  • Counsellors
  • Psychologists
  • Social workers
  • Family support workers
  • University students
  • Domestic violence and sexual assault workers
