Surviving Post-Separation Abuse: Supporting Survivors After Escaping Domestic Violence
"Just leave and you'll be safe." This widely held misconception that abuse ends after a victim leaves a domestic violence situation places these survivors and their families at risk. The desire to maintain power and control of an intimate partner does not end when the relationship ends for an abusive partner. Thus, the abuse continues in ways that we know of as post-separation abuse. Many of my clients and community members have called the abuse after they left a relationship "a new kind of hell," as there are limited resources or knowledge in our greater systems to help mitigate this new form of abuse. In this webinar, you will learn: -The signs and behaviors used by abusive ex-partners to continue to gain and maintain control of their target partner -The ways in which our larger systems support post-separation abuse to continue -Strategies that you can use to support survivors and mitigate these behaviors of post-separation abuse to improve the likelihood of safety for themselves and their children.
