What is Domestic Abuse? 

We will explore the current domestic abuse definition used by the UK government.  Special emphasis will be given to understanding coercive and controlling behaviour and how it is displayed in an intimate relationship.

How Can I Recognise the Signs? 

It is not possible to have an exhaustive list of all the signs of domestic abuse. However, in this video, we will explore some of the key effects that abuse has on a victim and through this will get an insight into how power and control can play out in a relationship.

Why Does Domestic Abuse Happen?  

We will visit the creation texts in the bible to explore why domestic abuse happens. We will also look at what are some contributing factors. 

Why Doesn't She Leave? 

This is one of the key questions that pop into people's minds, particularly if they are not aware of the complexities of domestic abuse. In this session, we will explore some of the key barriers to leaving and will start to unpack how we can support a victim or survivor in this process.

How Can I Support Victims of Domestic Abuse?

When supporting someone who is in or has been in an abusive relationship it is important to be reminded that we are neither Jesus nor Sherlock Holmes. In this video we will explore how to offer support in a way that is healthy and helpful. We will emphasize how people in leadership positions within the church could do this more effectively.
