‘How fluctuating mental capacity affect survivors’

Welsh Women’s Aid and Aberystwyth University will be hosted an informative webinar and we welcome you to join us. Led by Rebecca Zerk, Professor John Williams and Mwenya Chimba PhD (Head of Training at Welsh Women’s Aid), attendees learnt about the factors that can impact on mental capacity, from brain injury to learning disability and dementia, and their various indicators, as well as how to explore the best way of working with and responding to survivors who lack mental capacity in the context of a domestic abuse situation.
