Presenter: Nick Todd is a psychologist who has worked in the areas of addictions, trauma and violence, and mental health since 1987. Gillian Weaver-Dunlop is the manager of a counselling service for perpetrators and victims of family violence, at  the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter.

Content: The response-based approach for working with victims and perpetrators of abuse was developed by Dr. Allan Wade, Dr. Linda Coates, and Nick Todd (R. Psych). Nick Todd and Gillian Weaver-Dunlop have been using the response-based approach for many years in their therapeutic work. This webinar will focus on working with victims. Nick and Gillian will discuss how therapists using this approach a) honour a woman’s resistance to violence and abuse, and b) contest the blaming and pathologizing of victims.

Using case examples, Nick and Gillian will explore the five basic assumptions that underpin the response based approach. These assumptions include: 1) Whenever people are badly treated, they resist; 2) People tend not to notice that victims resist abuse; 3) Perpetrators know that victims will resist, so they make plans to try to stop the victim’s resistance; 4) abusive and violent behaviour is deliberate, conscious and planned, and 5) when it comes to domestic violence, appearances are deceiving (Wade, Coates, & Todd, n.d.).
