Dealing with resistance

Resistance is “any form of response that denies, challenges or undermines efforts” to prevent social change. Whilst it is inevitable, it can be helpful to be prepared. This fact sheet gives tips on how to respond to resistance.

What is an animal inclusive service?

Animals provide emotional support, unconditional love, and stability for many victim-survivors of domestic and family violence. This bond can be exploited by perpetrators, who may inflict or threaten harm to animals as a strategy to intimidate, coerce or control human victim-survivors. Having an animal inclusive practice validates the love and care that clients have for their animals and legitimises the human-animal bond. This fact sheet outlines how your service can be more animal inclusive.
