Understanding & Responding to Domestic Violence & Abuse - Notts County, The Brownsea Centre, Tuesday, 18. February 2020

Price: Free for practitioners/workers who work with clients in Nottinghamshire County (excluding City) only.
This one-day course aims to create a shared understanding of domestic violence and abuse among professionals working in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, and to increase appropriate responses. Delegates will:

explore different aspects of domestic violence and abuse and its causes,
explore the myths and stereotypes of domestic violence,
examine the reasons why people stay and return to abusive relationships and
consider the impact living with  domestic violence on survivors and children.
it also enables participants to identify, develop and implement communication and support skills, such as asking about the presence of domestic violence and safety planning, considering risk and effective signposting

Understanding and Responding to Domestic Violence and Abuse is the starting point for professionals. Much of the focus of this course is on women and children’s experience of abuse from male perpetrators, however many of the tools and resources are applicable to anyone living with domestic violence.
It is preferable that this course is completed before accessing other Equation courses, but it is an essential pre-requisite to the following: Challenging Domestic Violence: Good Practice Guideines for Working with Male Perpetrators of DV; Working with Children and Young People Impacted by Domestic Violence and Abuse.
Free places are kindly funded by Nottinghamshire County Joint Commissioners.
