Systemic Family Work After Family Violence

This workshop aims to offer an understanding of why relationship difficulties between family members remain or escalate, despite now being in a safe environment.

Systemic Family Work After Family Violence

This workshop focuses on working systemically with families (non-offending parent, children, grandparents, and so on) in the aftermath of domestic and family violence. Once the safety of non-offending clients and their children has been established there is usually a sense of relief on the part of clients and workers. In many instances there is also disappointment and despair that significant difficulties within the family remain, change or get worse. This workshop aims to offer an understanding of why relationship difficulties between family members remain or escalate, despite now being in a safe environment.
