Back by popular demand - Unveiling Sexual Exploitation - Zoe Lodrick | Tuesday, 30. June 2020

Back by popular demand! Please book on early as this is due to be filled quickly!

Zoe is a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and an experienced Trainer and Consultant. She has over 22 years experience of providing psychotherapy to women and men who have experienced rape, sexual assault and/or childhood sexual abuse; and providing training and consultation to professionals who work with victims/survivors of sexualised traumas (whether therapeutically or within the criminal justice system).

Zoe is generally recognised as having specialist knowledge/expertise in sexualised trauma, domestic abuse, victim behaviour, *** offending and the interviewing of victims of sexual crimes. Additionally Zoe has considerable knowledge regarding the therapeutic needs of victims/survivors of rape, sexual assault, child sexual exploitation/abuse and domestic abuse.

Throughout the day the seminar will cover;

The psychology of the offender:

• the process that precedes offending (Finklehor’s ‘Preconditions Model’)

• the ‘socially skilled’ *** offender

• how and why they target certain victims

• what the psychology of the offender does to the psychology of the victim

• the distorted thinking of *** offenders as reflected in society

• the importance of understanding *** offenders in order to safeguard people from them, recognise them, interview and prosecute them

The neurobiology of threat:

• the adolescent brain

• the specific vulnerabilities of children and, especially, teenagers to *** offenders

• why people do not usually react in ‘logical’ or ‘active’ ways when faced with intimate interpersonal threat

• the impact of the lack of understanding of why the person did not behave ‘logically and actively’, on the individual him or herself (resulting in guilt, shame and feelings of responsibility and, ultimately, potential omissions and alterations in their account), on the investigative and protection process and on criminal justice

• how and why people become vulnerable to repeated victimisation

• how and why victims can become ensnared with the abuser (perhaps not recognising themselves to be victims)

Attachment theory:

• basic concepts will be used to explain the traumatic bonding often observed in victims of intimate interpersonal violence/abuse

• recognising the vulnerabilities that some people have to being targeted and intimately abused/exploited

• understanding what is required from the professional to support people to either not become ensnared in an abusive relationship/environment or to disentangle from such
