About the Course

ECLIPSE's Becoming Response-able in Family Violence Work course is practice-based. It translates core family violence concepts such as social entrapment theory, the wider pattern of coercive control, and systems abuse into a guide for practice to enable safe and dignified responses.

Course Outcomes:

Attendees will:

  • Develop a solid understanding of what harmful responses are in the context of family violence.
  • Understand the practice of Social Entrapment theory, coercive control and systemic abuse.
  • Develop insight into identifying the Predominant Aggressor and the Primary Victim.
  • Understand institutional systems abuse and how to mitigate against perpetrator exploitation.
  • Learn about benefits of reflective and collaborative practices that safeguard against harmful response.

Course Facilitator:

  • Jacki Rowles' lived experience of being raised in a violent country, fraught with racism and sexism, entrenched in her home by a patriarchal-dominant father led her to work in family violence. Since 2007, she has worked with women and children, providing counselling, group programme facilitation, assessments and individual programmes for both predominant aggressors and primary victims of violence.

For all questions, contact the organiser.
