Wednesday 20th September 2017
Floralba will talk about her considerable experience of working with survivors of domestic violence. She will discuss the difficulties some women have in mourning, in encountering and accepting the reality of abuse, partly because of ingrained unconscious cultural beliefs (for example in societies which are tolerant of abuse). She will also talk about the challenges that this work presents and about the theoretical framework which she uses to make sense of her work.
