In this two-part series of A Conversation About… join Sabin Fernbacher and Louise Newman, peers and experts in this area as they share their insights into the complex nature and prevalence of family violence and its impact on Australian women, children and their mental health.
Listen as they traverse the challenges of the field – the chicken and egg of intervention (What came first, the experience of family violence or the mental illness?
) to the limitations of merely diagnosing and treating the mental illness.
From gaslighting to coercive control, Sabin and Louise share what they have learnt from their extensive experience working clinically with women and children who have suffered the persistent mental health challenges linked with family violence.
Guest and host leave no stone unturned as they delve into the unique challenges and triumphs of their work, as well as the critical role mental health professionals play in providing trauma-informed care.
