Title: Project Plan to Empowerment
Type of Activity: Workshops & Seminars
Objective of Course / Workshop: Intimate Partner Abuse & Intimate Partner Sexual Violence and introducing Executive State Identification ESI® in working with DV survivors Who should attend? Experienced health professionals including counsellors working in the field of domestic violence and sexual assault. This is a unique one-of-a-kind workshop. Ricky explores at a deep personal level what is means to be a survivor of (IPA) intimate partner abuse, (IPSV) intimate partner sexual violence, and torture as she exposes the labels of disempowerment and illegitimate shame. Learn how to utilise Ricky’s “recovery gems” with the people we work with. Ricky’s book, a powerful document is being used by survivors and health professionals in the therapeutic setting and with significant impact in men’s groups. Drawing from her secular experience in her professional life, single journeywoman Ricky Hunter developed her Project Plan to Empowerment document when used under strict medical supervision, can be a valuable tool to healing. Attending delegates will workshop the Project Plan to Empowerment and receive their own personal templates including river mapping for clients that have special needs. Taking into consideration the major issues faced by women who are abused (57% in their lifetime in Australia) these workshops successfully shed more light on the following complex questions; (Men also suffer domestic violence.) (a) What is Intimate Partner Abuse and Intimate Partner Sexual Violence and its long term health outcomes? (b) Why don’t women in abusive situations just leave? (c) What is the answer to ‘The Big Why?’ Why me? (d) What is the relationship between illegitimate shame and abuse? (e) What is the relationship between animal abuse and domestic abuse?
