This event is for YOU, because no one who lives through domestic violence ever expects it to happen to them.
I know... no one likes the sound of an event about domestic violence. 'It doesn't relate to me' we all think. That is what I thought too, and what I hear nearly every day from other women. But you have never been to an event run by Anita Bentata!
Anita is big on talking about the things no one else talks about, connecting, being real, being flexibly responsive, sharing her unique perspective, wisdom and laughter. She's also Libran so she likes beauty, and we need that when we are surrounded by shitty news, so come ready to be nourished in all your senses, your mind and your body.
Anita is a survivor from childhood, and later as an adult escaped domestic violence with her two young children. After about 7 years in court to protect her children, a lifetime intervention order, living with the impact of abuse on her children's childhood while she tried to heal herslf, therapy and then 20+ years as a trauma psychotherapist Anita wrote the book The Wolf in a Suit www.thewolfinasuit.com Anita then thought she better go out and see what other professionals were saying and doing... she was very disappointed. So she did the opposite of what everyonen else is doing.
Learn the secrets to protect yourself, your daughter/son, your future self, your friend, or your work colleagues or staff.
Just to be clear, this event is for survivors, professionals and everyone who has a heart that is still pumping, wants to be loved and love, sometimes gets stressed and overwhelmed, and confused about how much to prioritise yourself or another.
Most domestic violence events are experts on a stage and a passive audience. Q & A is brief and often shut down when feelings arise. There is an unspoken need to control the perceived chaos. I leave dissatisfied and with a sore head and no clear sense of how I or my community can move forward and make a difference. There is never enough time for all the questions. Yet within any audience, there are many people who hold pieces about the issues and the solutions, but are not included in a collaborative process.This event..read in the link in bio
