For Victims of Abusive Relationships
THE VOICE PROGRAMME
Three-day Facilitator Training.
The VOICE Programme is a new and exciting psycho-educational programme for victims of abusive relationships.
Run over ten weeks this programme enables adults to safely address the many issues related to domestic violence, coercive control and the behaviours that create the dynamic of intimate partner relationship abuse. It supports victims to identify the broad spectrum of abusive behaviours, the process of dismantling that a victim goes through and the significant impact of such traumatic experiences. In a contained and supported way.
The main aims of the programme are to address the various behaviours of a controlling partner both in situ and post-separation and to offer relatable psychoeducation on trauma and normal stress responses, enabling victims to learn more about self-regulation and self-care.
The programme is committed to weaving in the themes of intersectionality and the additional barriers this presents to victims, theoretic models which help victims to identify where they are at in the cycle or stage of domestic abuse both pre and post-separation and the use of digital technology to further compound abusive dynamics.
The programme is interactive and draws on a variety of different learning styles using discussion, self-reflective exercises, visual media and active participation to generate learning for all participants. This programme can be run successfully online or face to face, in groups or where needed in a one-to-one capacity.
The programme has been developed mindfully by people with lived experience to meet the need for improved understanding, sharing of current protocol and legislation, and to give practitioners the best chance of supporting the victims with whom they work in a supportive, regulated and trauma informed framework.
VOICE so far has already been invaluable on my journey of self- healing after years of suffering domestic abuse. It enlightens survivors to understand what they have endured and process how it has affected them on so many levels. It also empowers you to finally move towards a safer future
Excellent programme as it not only looks at the behaviours and intentions of an abuser but also the impact psychologically on the victim in the short and longer term. It also provides hope, support and strategies to support self-regulation moving forward. I really liked the section on the abusive parent.
