We are so excited to be travelling around the UK in 2024, delivering over 6 days of training and seminars to professionals and members of the public who follow our work.
About the events
In these open events, we will be discussing the evidence for pathologisation of women and girls in all systems of power, from criminal and family courts through to medicine and mental health. We will explore why women are labelled as hysterical, emotional, mentally ill and problematic - and how this leads to oppression, discrimination, and victim prejudice when they disclose domestic abuse, child abuse, coercive control, or sexual violence.
Spend the day engaging in an interactive, discussion-centred, evidence-based workshop in which we challenge everyone to consider what we can all do to stop the global medicalisation and pathologisation of women’s trauma and distress.
Our teaching style is conversational, open, frank and inclusive. You do not need to be an academic or professional to attend, but our events will greatly assist professionals, students, academics and those with an interest in women’s experiences of trauma, distress and abuse. We will include links and access to free trauma-informed resources and evidence for all delegates.
We cannot wait to meet you all!
