About domestic abuse and adverse childhood experiences training courses for therapists
Domestic abuse, also sometimes referred to as ‘domestic violence’ or ‘intimate partner violence’, is an incident or pattern of incidents in relationships involving controlling, coercive, degrading, threatening and violent behaviour. It is usually perpetrated by a current partner or ex-partner, but also sometimes by family members or carers. Men account for the vast majority of perpetrators of domestic abuse, with women largely being its victims.
When perpetrated against a child, domestic violence is also an example of an Adverse Childhood Experience, or ACE. ACEs are stressful events that occur in childhood, with other potential instances including parental abandonment through separation or divorce, being a victim of physical or emotional neglect, and growing up in a household in which adults are experiencing problems with alcohol and drug use.
The stress and trauma of domestic abuse can give rise to feelings in the sufferer of blame and responsibility, with ACEs also potentially detrimentally impacting children’s social development and relationships. Mental health professionals aiming to make successful interventions in the case of clients suffering from domestic abuse and ACEs are therefore likely to benefit from specialised and informed training to assist clients in overcoming their trauma.
