5.0 out of 5 stars Freedom Programme Home Study book 5 Sep 2011
By Tracy
Format:Paperback
Brilliant resource to use with the living with the dominator or on its own to help explain and explore the tactics used by those who use power and control to abuse others.
The home study Freedom Programme is also great for those who can not attend a programme or who just want to find out more about domestic abuse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freedom Programme Home Study book 2 Sep 2011
By Cherylb
Format:Paperback
This book used alongside Living with the dominator builds into a unique personal record for the user. It brings the Freedom Programme to life and is set out into easy to understand sections. Women who have used it say that it has been invaluable to them in helping them to understand the programme. They said it was excellent to be able to read back over the weeks they have completed. Once women have worked through this book with a facilitator they often feel much more confident to attend a group. Well done Pat another excellent tool in the battle against domestic abuse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freedom Programme Home Study Course 9 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
I am a great fan of the Freedom Programme & it's a tool I have used with success for many years; via direct delivery of a Freedom Programme support group, or training professionals, or used in supervision of case workers case loads.
The new addition of the Freedom Programme Home Study Course workbook is a fantastically accessible compliment to the traditional Freedom Programme format; be that groups &/or from having read `Living With The Dominator'. The Home Study Course workbook takes the reader through the familiar format of the group delivery, with the inclusion of the quiz, tactics, beliefs, affects & positive behaviour choices. For each section there is space for the reader to write their answer, thoughts & views, enabling everything the reader has learnt to be kept safely in one workbook, for future reference and reviews.
It has the flexibility to reach more victims/survivors, perpetrators & practitioners, to learn and understand the dynamics and long reaching impacts of domestic abuse, on the family unit, whether separated or still together, whether historical or current. The Home Study Course is appropriate for individuals to work through alone, or to reinforce the learning's of group attendance, enabling accelerated understanding.
For professionals this is a fantastic tool that can be used as a framework for their case work sessions with individuals or families.

By Jo Ly
Format:Paperback
An excellent resource to partner Ms Craven's Living with the Dominator; another recommendation I can make to anyone dealing with domestic abuse, whether in a professional or a personal capacity.
With each section of the book corresponding with the persona of the Dominator; the Home Study Course can be used both as a tool within each session of The Freedom Programme and as "homework" to encourage the participants to reflect on their learning in-between sessions. This can also be used during 1-1 sessions with a woman who is unable to be involved with group-work or those preparing to join a group.
One tip when working with women who are still in an abusive relationship; I keep a box of folders handy to enable them to keep their books with me if they feel taking them home could increase their danger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource 18 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
Living with the Dominator 'Home Study Course' is a fantastic resource to help those make sense of the abuse they have suffered and begin to build a life free from violence and abuse. It is a great option for those who cannot attend a Freedom Programme Course as well as being a great supplement to the course itself. Pat Craven's insight into abuse against women is inspirational and her books are a must read for professionals working in the field of abuse, women who have suffered at the hands of an abuser as well as anyone looking to gain an understanding into domestic abuse.

5.0 out of 5 stars From a Social Work Professionals perspective! 18 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
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!!!
