When the Rapist is Her Partner IPSV Training Workshops and Presentations by Louise
Although I have presented about IPSV over the years, in July 2013 I specifically developed the When the Rapist is Her Partner workshops and presentations for professionals who intersect with survivors of intimate partner sexual violence . You can read about presentations and workshops on this page, and contact me to talk about engaging one, or with any questions you may have.
You may download a workshop flyer here. Please share it with your networks.
Please also see testimonials here.
About workshops and presentations:
- How long? A workshop can be a full-day or half-day. A presentation can go for one and a half hours or longer, as you like.
- What topics do you cover? I can speak with you about tailoring to suit the audience your organisation will invite. Please see below for a list of just some of the topics I can cover..
- Costs: A schedule of fees is available on request - contact me . Obviously costs will also depend on the length of the workshop or presentation, flight costs etc. Please note that for full-day workshops, I prefer to bring my co-facilitator Helen Newman, whose costs will also need to be covered.
- How to host a workshop? Organisations typically host a workshop or presentation at a venue of their choice - either in conjunction with others or by themselves - sending out expressions of interest to see if they can get the numbers. Sometimes they will charge a registration fee to participants in order to cover associated costs. A presentation may also be part of a larger domestic violence, sexual assault or other violence to women-related seminar or forum.
- When am I available? Because I understand the need to seek interest and funding, you do not need to book a definite date with me to begin with; you can propose a tentative time or times and I'll let you know whether I'm available then. Or, you can seek interest and funding and then talk to me about dates. To know when I am not available, please see this page.
- How does a workshop differ from a presentation? A presentation is typically shorter and more focused on delivery of information rather than interactivity and skills-buillding. However, I also actively engage presentation audiences in discussion rather than speaking "at" them for the allotted time. The topics delivered are the same, depending on time and what is most suited to the audience.
- Where am I based? Albury, NSW
- Do I have a flyer? Yes, please request it.
