Responding to Abuse Within Families and Building Ethical Resistance
Rob Hall and Alison Newton
This one-day practice based workshop focused on developing responses to people who have been subjected to abuse from those they love and to those who have inflicted abuse on those they love. It took place on June 20th, 2012 with special guests Rob Hall and Alison Newton (Adelaide, Australia). They provided participants with a framework for counselling people subjected to or perpetrating abuse in a range of circumstances, with a particular focus on domestic violence. The workshop is based on the work and approaches of Michael White and Alan Jenkins who, as friends and colleagues for 30 years, have informed and supported Rob and Alison in their work.
