Aim of the course

  • This is a one day course to encourage reflective practice and analytical thinking around the impact of domestic violence & abuse.


By the end of the training participants will:

  • have received a brief overview of the relevant legislation.
  • have explored the nature, scope, and impact of abusive behaviour in intimate partner and extra-familial relationships.
  • know how to screen and respond effectively, decreasing risk and increasing safety.
  • understand risk factors, their evidence base, and risk assessment tools practitioners can use. (The MARAC process will be described briefly).
  • have explored why victims/survivors may remain in/leave abusive situations.
  • understand the associated issues for Safeguarding Children.
  • have analysed the coping strategies of victims/survivors who are parents.
  • have received information about local and national domestic abuse support services and about making referrals to Children & Families Services.

The training has given me more confidence and knowledge to work with cases where domestic abuse is a feature!
