The aim of the seminar is to explore the description of domestic violence, what constitute domestic violence and its impact in the community. Presentation will encourage interactions to focus on emotional and psychological impact of domestic violence and what it means in relation to same sex relationship, race and culture. Discussions will also challenge myths and stereotypes. Group exercises and discussion of the barriers faced in seeking help and when seeking outside/agency’s help will also provide the opportunity to explore some of the issues victims/survivors face in the U.K. Watch Poppy and Pretish discuss the workshop: https://goo.gl/j3hsM7
