‘Whenever someone is treated badly, they resist’ – Dr Allan Wade, 1997
Survivors of abuse are often described as passive in the face of the violence and abuse they withstand, and they are often blamed for their passivity and for the violence they endure. Violence is also often misrepresented and hidden, survivors are attributed many pathologies.
Response-based therapy, a ground breaking psychotherapeutic approach, challenges these practices and identifies the many everyday ways victims resist. It recognizes their ability to respond actively to acts of aggression and to resist the abuser whenever possible and as much possible in order to protect themselves, their dignity and self-respect.
The intermediate level course is only for those who have attended a response-based approach course at any time in the past. The intermediate level course serves as a continuation of the beginner level course and will deepen your understanding and practice of the Response-based approach as well as address any difficulties you have encountered using the approach after the beginner level course. The intermediate level course will also address all the questions you might have after the beginner level course.
Martine Renoux, Dip. Psych. MA. UKCP Reg; has been a practising therapist and a trainer for over 30 years and has worked privately, in the NHS and the public sector. She began to use the Response Based approach in 1998 working closely with Allan Wade. She has facilitated domestic violence groups and worked with perpetrators of abuse.
