Why doesn't she leave?

Session type:
Case Study

Session duration:
60 minutes

Presented by:

Janice Hannaway

Private consultant - I work with various charities including Women's Aid and Moira Anderson Foundation..

About this Case Study

Domestic abuse continues to be a huge problem in society, with 2 women per week being killed by a former or current partner. On average, a woman will contact 11 agencies when attempting to leave the abuser.

With my 20 years' expertise in this field, I will illustrate why this experience influences her decision to end her journey to safety and return to the abuser. This will also evidence a clear understanding to the common question, "Why doesn't she leave?".

About the Speaker

I am a consultant, accredited psychodynamic therapist, coach and clinical supervisor. I have 20 years' experience in the field of counselling and specialise in working therapeutically with adults and young people who have suffered the many traumatic effects of abuse. This is comprised of childhood sexual abuse, rape, sexual assault and all forms of domestic abuse, which include intimate partner violence, psychological, sexual, financial and physical abuse.

My experience has been gained from working with clients from Women's Aid and the Moira Anderson Foundation. Prior to this, I also have 13 years' experience in the public sector, as an executive officer for the Benefits Agency. My experience included responsibility for benefit processing, benefit appeals and fraud, social fund grants and loans, linking to the Child Support Agency and responsibility for a £5 million budget.
