Pat Craven's LIVING WITH THE DOMINATOR has been the greatest resource and tool kit, that I have ever used in my many years as a Child Protection Consultant within Local Authority and Private and Charitable organisations. This book has a unique, simple but also highly informed and educational quality that can be used to inform individuals experiencing domestic violence and abuse, and also for professionals who have the very difficult task of formulating interventions and assessments in child protection cases where domestic violence is prevalent.
Having used this resource for a number of years, I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to review Pat Craven's new addition to her already great library of resources, the brilliant 'THE FREEDOM PROGRAMME HOME STUDY COURSE'. This is an addendum to LIVING WITH THE DOMINATOR that can be used by individuals privately, as well as for professional interventions and assessments. THE FREEDOM PROGRAMME HOME STUDY COURSE is one of the greatest resources a person/professional can have, with a guided systemic process of information and detail that can enable us to gain clarity on what we think, feel and how we behave, living and working with domestic violence.
I can only highly recommend, whether you are a woman experiencing domestic violence and abuse, a man who wants to stop his violence and abuse, or a professional working within the field of domestic violence and abuse - that you purchase these books as a matter of priority.
If individuals and our society is to become a place where we want ourselves, our children and our grandchildren to live without fear and violence ...... we must all read and work through these books as a matter of urgency!!!
