Living with the Dominator
About this deal
As a result, we have received several requests from schools, police, judges, lawyers, social workers and our many Freedom Programme Facilitators to amalgamate all the animations and create an audio-visual pack. Whilst the book does touch on affects of violence on children, I would have liked this part to be lengthier and what was written wasn’t relevant to me.
I am fortunate enough to have never experienced abuse but this book opened my eyes to the signs in another person.I have known Sharon for 6 years and have had the pleasure of working alongside her when I chaired the Westminster MARAC. What to look out for, usual signs delves into the mind of The Dominator and why women can feel so confused and tells women how to get out of these horrific situations.
It can help readers of any age and sexual orientation to change their own behaviour and to recognise when they are being controlled.I was aware of some aspects due to a previous job but would definitely recommend all to read this book, not just for yourself but to recognise friends or family members who may be suffering. The programme, when provided as an intensive two day course, is also suitable for men, whether abusive and wishing to change their attitudes and behaviour or whether victims of same sex domestic abuse themselves.
A woman should never be allowed to leave or end a relationship, no matter how abusive or violent it is’ – says he loves us, threatens suicide. She is extremely dedicated and knowledgeable, having her on my side when dealing with someone as persistent. We have a dedicated Data Protection Officer who has responsibility for monitoring compliance, educating staff, providing advice and co-operating with the supervisory authority.It’s probably slightly damaging to some victims/survivors as they will be sat thinking “well my partner doesn’t/didn’t do that” because it’s always the worst case scenario - so they may not believe they are/have been abused. She also gives tips on how a male can be a jailer, sexual controller, ‘king of the castle (yet with this part of a man abusive character, we can reinforce this abuse by saying ‘ah this is just men’), the bully and the liar. If we look at this cycle, we can see that at no point is The Dominator actually angry or out of control.
