In this interactive workshop, held at Paddington Anglican Church in August, psychologist Kylie Pidgeon shared her insights as a Christian psychologist who works with perpetrators and survivors of family violence. In the recording, hear about the various forms of Family Violence from psychological, theological, legal, and social perspectives, and how Christians and churches can speak peace and protection into violent situations. We even had a go at some personal self-defence techniques.

PEACEtalks is a monthly event hosted by Paddington Anglican Church aimed at serving the community by promoting and cultivating deep conversations about life, the world and everything. ‘PEACE’ stands for ‘political, ethical, artistic & cultural engagement’. As such, our events seek to take all of these areas of our shared humanity seriously in a world where such things are often marginalised. We also seek to demonstrate the ways in which spiritual and theological reflection enable us to look at all of these important areas afresh. All welcome!
