Consistently see how victims of difficult relationships end up committing some of the same
destructive cycles that victimize others in patterns of child abuse, domestic violence, alcoholism
and manipulation. This workshop clearly illustrates how helpers can understand this dynamic
and help illuminate patterns that become destructive. Using the framework of Restoration
Therapy, participants will learn how to utilize emotional regulation and mindfulness techniques
to assist hurting victimized clients in resisting the cyclical process of becoming victimizers in
their own important relationships.
