Overview

Our understanding of domestic abuse is changing. Where we once regarded domestic abuse as isolated violent incidents, we now understand that abuse comes in many forms and is a much wider picture of coercive and controlling behaviour. Would you know what to do if you knew someone who was experiencing domestic abuse?

Developed and delivered by experienced trainers who work on the frontline, supporting survivors from crisis to recovery, our training is for anyone who comes into contact with survivors, be it a client, colleague or friend, to help you build your understanding, knowledge and skills to respond and offer support.

This course is accredited by CPDUK, and participants will recieve a personalised CPD certifcate after the training.

What you will learn

  • Have a deeper understanding of the barriers for survivors to disclose domestic abuse and engage with services
  • Have a deeper understanding of trauma, how it impacts on survivors and what that means for them as practitioners
  • Develop practical, survivor-centred tools and strategies for engaging survivors to access support
  • Have increased confidence in assessing risk and safety planning
