TO DEVELOP AND DELIVER
ECLIPSE training packages are designed to ignite mindset change and further develop the workforce capability of those who engage with people and whānau experiencing family violence, as well as extended family and communities, on
how to identify dynamics of family violence and respond safely to those impacted.
ECLIPSE training packages will provide the answer to the age-old question of “why don’t victims just leave” by highlighting the barriers that Coercive control create. This unfathomable question will now become fathomable and all aprticpants will leave never having to ask that question again.
ECLIPSE training packages will support practitioners to engage respectfully with whānau, in ways which honour their ability to be self-determining, and which build upon their own interventions to address harm in a dignity enhancing manner.
ECLIPSE understands that by being able to relate to people experiencing abuse with genuine
empathy and understanding, the invisible barriers will become visible. And that through connection,
pathways to safety will emerge and individuals will be empowered to reach out to those who can best assist.
Through prevention the sector will increase whānau safety and wellbeing, and significantly reduce -
victimisation, recidivist offending and the substantial personal, social and financial cost of family violence in Aotearoa New Zealand.
