"Survivors Change the Conversation About Domestic Abuse" - BES Virtual Platform

Date: May 22
Speaker: Connie Phelps
Survivors Change the Conversation About Domestic Abuse

While domestic abuse is commonly considered a private concern, it is in fact a very common and worsening public health issue. The ideologies that cause domestic abuse and allow it to flourish operate equally at the level of the individual abuser, the communities and families of the couple, and larger societal forces such as law enforcement, psychology and religion. After reviewing the basic facts regarding domestic abuse, we will explore the ways in which each layer of society reinforces the abuse dynamic as experienced by the victim-survivor and exploited by the abuser. The antidote to the ocean of anti-survivor messages in which we swim is a growing peer-to-peer support community online, which is re-defining the conversation and mechanisms of resistance.

Connie Phelps is a social worker, mother and domestic violence Expert by Experience.
