This bitesize focuses on the cyclical nature of an abuser’s behaviour. Volunteers will discuss the relationship between the internal rules of an abuser and how they respond to a rule being “broken” by their partner/family member. We will discuss the way in which this cycle moves from “walking on eggshells” to a violent incident and then back to a relatively “quiet” time. Participants will understand the reasons why this cycle happens, it’s used for an abuser and their intentions and rewards at each stage. The aim of this training is to examine the Duluth Power and Control Wheel. You will gain an understanding of how power and control are used in domestic abusive relationships to create fear. This will build upon your understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse.
Please only sign up for this session if you are an IDAS volunteer.
