A psychiatrist will take you through the trauma of domestic violence, including: the impact of recurrent threat; the phenomena of capture-bonding, brainwashing, mind control and Stockholm Syndrome; the components of mind control; the stages of change and strategies to deal with those various stages. Examine the various types of domestic violence, the cycle of violence, and gain an understanding of why it is so difficult to leave these abusive situations. Finally, study ways to improve your attorney-client relationship with the victims. Gain tips on how to deal with common issues that arise when dealing with these types of cases. In March 2006, PBI presented a full-day hour course on Domestic Violence: Protection from Abuse Proceedings. This course is excerpted from that (as are three others available on our Online Campus) .
