One in Four is an equal opportunity service and we recognise that both female and males survivors are to have equal access to our service. All workshops are open to women and men.
Free – Awareness Raising Workshops – 2013
All workshops are delivered in an accepting environment that promotes self-awareness and exploration. Whilst individuals will take away what they need from our work together, the workshops are not a substitute for therapy and we always recommend individuals ensure they have emotional support in place if they feel the content may stimulate past experiences.
My Mother, myself Saturday 16th November 2013: 2pm – 5pm
This workshop is aimed at raising awareness of the impact of a mother’s relationship with her child. This relationship that we have with our mother is the relationship that we now have with ourselves. As we begin to meet women in the world, we experience a similar dynamic to that which we had with our mothers as children. We also internalise our mother’s unresolved issues such as: pain, anger, depression and victimisation. In this workshop we will begin to identify ways in which we may act out some of these unresolved issues.

TRAINING WITH CHRISTIANE SANDERSON
shame in the Room
Saturday 23rd November 2013
10.00 am – 4.00 pm
Shame is like a virus that infects the soul and yet remains largely hidden. As a social emotion shame can have crippling effects on the individual, in particular those that have experienced prolonged and systematic complex trauma, such as in childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence.
This training day will examine the nature and complex dynamics of shame and its impact and long term effects and how it can appear in daily life. We will identify the various faces of shame and how they manifest and the part it plays in attacking both the self and other.
Through experiential exercises we will be able to explore how shame can both help and hinder the discharge of shame. We will familiarise ourselves with a range of therapeutic strategies and techniques that facilitate the release of shame to promote healing.

A NEW PLAY FROM MOSAC FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS is a powerful and inspiring drama which tells seven true stories of child sexual abuse using verbatim theatre techniques.
FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS was created by London-based playwright Amanda Stuart Fisher from 14 hours of interviews with mothers who had discovered that their children had been sexually abused.
Alright, he got his silly five years but he only done eighteen months or something and he’s free now – he can do what he likes. But all three of my children have got a sentence for life.
The play shares with us the voices of mothers who have had to fight to get the support their children needed in the face of terrifying abuse.
Through these interweaved narratives, we learn about failings in Britain’s judicial processes, a lack of support and recognition in the social services and doctors who overlook the physical signs of abuse.
Crossing all walks of life, the play brings us stories of the mothers who become fighters for their children, who risk losing everything in their bid to protect their children from further abuse.
The judge said: ‘if I make an order to allow your father to apply for contact, you realise you have to comply, you have no choice.’ I just basically stood up and I said I don’t care who tells me… I will not subject my daughter to further abuse. I would rather go to prison’
FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS was created as a collaboration with Mosac, a UK charity which supports non-abusing parents and carers of children whose children have been sexually abused and The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, University of London and Awards for All.
FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS will be at The Pleasance, Islington from 22-25 May. Tickets are £12, £10 concessions and can be purchased at www.pleasance.co.uk.
