For Victims of Abusive Relationships
THE VOICE PROGRAMME
Three-day Facilitator Training.
The VOICE Programme is a twelve-week domestic abuse programme for adults addressing domestic violence, coercive control and the behaviours that create the dynamic of intimate partner relationship abuse. With a part-knowledge based and part-therapeutic approach the programme 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.
The main aims of the programme are to address the various behaviours of a controlling partner both in situ and post-separation offer relatable psychoeducation on trauma and normal stress responses, enable victims to learn more about the impact of traumatic experiences and build their capacity for self-regulation and their commitment to self-care.
The programme is committed to weaving in the themes of intersectionality and the additional barriers this presents to victims, recognition of abusive and coercive behaviours, 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 in a supportive, regulated and trauma informed framework.
This programme can be run successfully online or face to face, in groups or in a one-to-one capacity.
The programme has been developed mindfully by professionals with three decades of experience delivering training in the domestic abuse arena. Designed 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 and regulated way using a trauma-informed framework and approach.
The VOICE of victims and survivors informing the very heart of the programme.
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.
