Description

Domestic abuse knows no barriers of age, religion, culture or gender; although the vast majority of victims are women. Be it Emotional Abuse, Physical Abuse, Financial Abuse, Sexual Abuse or Neglect, etc. this course unravels the dangers of abusive relationships.

This course will help you be clear on whether domestic abuse is present in a relationship. A victim can go from feeling devalued, disrespected, frustrated, confused, mentally tired or stressed, isolated, alone and in fear in an unhealthy relationship to being knowledgeable enough to get further advice and support while gaining the confidence so you can move towards gaining mental and physical freedom, and flourishing in a beautiful new life.

I have personally been there, I experienced it and want to share the wealth of knowledge and information with you on how you too can survive and thrive. Why? Awareness and Knowledge is POWER, it can lead you to Freedom! I want you to be Abuse-Free and live the FULFILLING life you were born to!

As your instructor I will share insights and expertise from over two decades of personal experience, research and training in relationship dynamics.

Students will learn a number of key lessons including: Signs of abuse, understanding the way an abuser tries to trap you, the foundations of abuse and the effects of abuse, to name a few things.
