ECLIPSE's Practitioner-Victim Insight Concept (PVIC) is the overarching theory which ECLIPSE has developed to help build understanding of the dynamics of family violence and coercive control.

PVIC is a foundational course which introduces fundamental concepts upon which all other ECLIPSE trainings are built.  This course further provides coercive control awareness, practice guidelines, and tools in order to take the learning and understanding of PVIC and actively transform that into daily practice. We recommend completing a PVIC training course before attending other ECLIPSE courses. 

About the Course

The Practitioner-Victim Insight Concept (PVIC) is ECLIPSE's practice model developed through lived and practice experience. PVIC raises awareness of coercive control as an overarching family violence tactic. Through sharing her story, Debbs Murray will introduce attendees to the PVIC practice model and help them gain a deeper understanding of coercive control as an umbrella tactic for family violence, which results in whole-of-person entrapment. Attendees will walk away with a greater understanding of the question,"why doesn't she just leave?", and gain the awareness and tools required to translate that into everyday practice in a confident and more empathetic way.

Course Outcomes:

  • Obtain a deeper understanding of ECLIPSE's Practitioner-Victim Insight Concept.

  • Develop knowledge of resistance strategies and how victims resist coercive control and family violence every day.

  • Understand the importance of self-determination strategies, dignity-enhancing practice, and empathetic connection as steps to a healing pathway.

  • Grow in awareness and knowledge of the guidelines for identifying and navigating coercive control as an overarching family violence tactic.

  • Be provided with practice tools and guidelines developed by victim-survivors and are embedded with, and informed by, the voice of those with a lived experience of family violence.

​Course facilitator:

  • Debbs Murray was a victim of serious family violence and harm. Upon navigating a pathway to a life free from violence, she has dedicated her career to the family violence sector.
