This is most likely one of the worst – if not the worst – experience of your life. Hopefully, this book will give you some guidelines that will help you walk the journey.
The Pastoral Counselling Institute offers support and information lunches and forums, not too large, and a safe place for partners or relatives to share and listen to some of their experiences, and to be supported by each other. It is specifically for partners or relatives with a close relative/friend who has committed a child sex offence.
On the 22nd of October 2016 a support forum day was held and facilitated by Naomi Millar-Powell. Feedback from the day was positive and all felt supported and look forward to further learning and support.
This symposium is an opportunity for psychologists, counsellors, general practitioners, and professionals working in forensic settings and the community sector to develop their knowledge and skills in working with individuals experiencing the invisible collateral damage associated with offending behaviour. Individuals affected by a (ex)partners or family member’s offending would also benefit from attending this important symposium.
