Attendees will identify the various roles prevalent in the field of domestic violence and the roles they play professionally and personally. We will refer to a powerful tool called Role Profile Assessment utilized in the methodology of Role Theory. Roles such as: Survivor, Warrior, Hero, Healer, Helper, Worrier, and Witness are often identified in our work serving women and children who have been affected by domestic violence. This workshop will explore how these roles can impact our personal and professional lives, often without one even being aware of it. Participants will learn how to apply this assessment tool within their work with clients or with staff in a supervisory context. Attendees will learn and practice the concept of integration as it applies to role theory and domestic violence. Participants will practice and create activities surrounding the themes of equality and empowerment to implement with clients, to support one’s own self-care, and to utilize in interactions with staff.
