Course Content
The Freedom Programme domestic abuse programme, regardless of your role or perspective gives you the answers, to understand the intricacies and complexities of an abusive dynamic.

The Freedom Programme was created by Pat Craven and evolved from her work with perpetrators of domestic violence. The Programme is a human behavior, educational model and was primarily designed for women as victims of domestic abuse, because research shows us that the prevalence of domestic abuse are male on female. This is not to exclude men as victims.

The Freedom Programme examines the roles played by attitudes and beliefs on the actions of perpetrators, victims and survivors. The aim is to help them to make sense of and understand what has happened to them, instead of the whole experience just feeling like a horrible mess, specifically from the victims perspective.
