Published November 2018: As we learn new and effective physiological treatments for those who have been targeted by violent individuals with relationships, outcomes are becoming far more suited to the posttraumatic growth of those affected as a whole. An understanding into the basic functioning of the adrenal glands, the psoas muscle group and vast hormonal changes in the fight or flight systems are crucial when working with victims of domestic violence. This information gives useful insight into how the body can quickly become overloaded with stress and how the response can manifest in to a myriad of illness even years after the trauma. Adrenal fatigue is just one of the severe and enduring physical aftershocks of the violence element in domestic abuse. For many years those who have been affected by domestic abuse and violence have been offered basic counselling or similar talking therapies. Treatments have moved on a long way from this such as working with the Poly Vagel Theory and acknowledging the role of the Psoas muscle. It is now more than ever, evident that those affected, suffer physiologically for many years after and that they need a network of support around them to assist with their recovery.

Description

For those who have come out of a volatile relationship where domestic violence and abuse has played a major part. Where they have experienced psychological damage and coercive controlling behaviours, cannot just simply ‘move on’ after having engaged in a few weeks of general counselling or online videos, often put in place after the practical and legal work has ended.

This book is aimed at practitioners and therapists working with survivors in the aftermath of destructive relationships and life connections, recovery can be made up of many complexities, life changing long term issues and emotional wounding. As we learn new and effective physiological treatments for those who have been targeted by violent individuals within relationshipsand faced domestic violence and abuse outcomes are becoming far more suited to the post traumatic growth of those affected as a whole.An understanding into the basic functioning of the adrenal glands, the psoas muscle and the vast hormonal changes in the fight or flight systems are crucial when working with victims of domestic violence.

For many years, those affected by domestic violence and abuse, have been offered basic counselling or similar talking therapies. Treatments have moved on a long way from this, such as working with the Poly Vagal Theory and acknowledging the role of the Psoas muscle. It is now more than ever, evident that those affected, suffer physiologically for many years after and that they need a network of support around them to assist with their recovery.

In almost every evaluation included in this publication the client presents as being isolated in some way, although these are only a few reports from one area in the country, it is evident that we as collective organisations need to look at upping our game in delivery of inclusion of services, in finding new ways to offer initial covert assistance to those affected by this abusive and violent behaviour.

Those who have not recovered from the horrors of violent relationships can continue to experience mental health issues, an issue that is grossly understaffed in the current mental health system. Victims of post violence are not reeling from a relationship, heartbroken though they may be, many are seriously trying to move on with volumes of unprocessed traumatic information both psychologically and physically.
