About The Shark Cage

All too often women who report symptoms of depression, anxiety and addiction have a history of abuse, often beginning in childhood. Many believe they must be to blame for abuse in their lives if it keeps happening.

The Shark Cage framework helps professionals and their clients understand re-victimisation in a way that does not blame the victim.

It can also be used in a preventative way to increase young women’s understanding of their rights and awareness of abusive behaviours. This preventative work can be carried out in multiple settings, including a school environment.

The Shark Cage framework using various approaches to training including psycho-education, cognitive behavioural therapy, narrative and strengths based approaches and skills training.

The Shark Cage helps women to externalise the issue of violence against them

and challenge victim blaming in a simple and engaging way.

Some of the learning objectives are to help and assist women:

Identify what bars they want to install or strengthen in their Shark Cage and link this activity to a human rights framework.

Activate an alarm system in their renovated Shark Cage. This involves helping them to tune into feelings and body sensations.

Prepare for and respond to Shark Cage breaches when it is safe to do so. This involves assertiveness training with an emphasis on boundary setting and defending.

Identify behaviours that indicate when a person is disrespecting their rights.

Identify behaviours that show a person is supporting their rights.
