Domestic Abuse and its Impacts

Sometimes it’s difficult to realise that you’re in a relationship where domestic abuse is happening. Domestic abuse is more than physical violence, and today we’ll be looking at what that means.

Assertiveness

As women, we are often encouraged to nurture and please at the expense of ignoring our own needs. It can be difficult to be assertive if we have had little modelling and minimal practice at it.

Women traditionally have not been taught that assertiveness is a good thing. Instead, they may have been encouraged to ignore what they want and need or hope that someone else will guess what they want and need.

Within this session women will gain an understanding of assertiveness.

Coping with Depression

Many women affected by domestic abuse suffer from feelings of depression and can sometimes feel their only escape is through suicide. We will explore how to be more compassionate and caring to ourselves when we might be living with depression or suicidal feelings, and how to find appropriate support.
