Abstract

This article introduces the conceptual practice tool of 'The Vortex of Violence' and one suggested practice model for utilising the vortex of violence in practice with women who have experienced a domestic violence relationship. The practice tool and model are an expansion of 'The Cycle of Violence' that shifts the focus from explanation of the dynamics of abusive relationships to the exploration of the lived experience of women and the development of a personal/therapeutic template for healing and reclaiming of their lives.
