Responding to Coerced and Tactical Suicide within the Context of Family Violence | ShantiWorks
October 25 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$660
This workshop will begin to make sense of the interplay between suicide and intimate partner violence. Through the lens of coercive control and social entrapment, we will explore how patterns of threat and risk posed by perpetrators of intimate partner violence not only leads to potential homicide but also suicide of victims/survivors. This workshop will provide scaffolding around our practice, to better make visible the coercive and entrapping nature of intimate partner violence, to strengthen our risk assessment, safety planning and threat management work. We will also examine the tactical use of suicide by perpetrators and the ripple effects for victims, family and community.
