Training Overview:

Domestic abuse is a complex issue that can feel difficult to address safely and appropriately. This foundation training session is designed to help staff working in educational settings to build their knowledge base, skills, and confidence around this subject matter. It will offer practical tools and share evidence-based models of intervention both to identify unhealthy or abusive relationships and to provide support to families. In this session, the participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own practice, particularly linked to disclosures. Furthermore, it will create space to unpick social constructs, common beliefs and attitudes that shape the survivors’ journey and influence long-term prevention.

This session can also be delivered in-person to all staff in a particular setting (London only at present). Please get in touch to enquire.

Impact on your Knowledge, Skills and Confidence:

  • Increased knowledge of coercive control and its impact on the survivors of domestic abuse, including children.
  • Improved confidence in facilitating conversations around domestic abuse with families and/or colleagues.
  • Improved ability in identifying actions that can be taken to support families.
  • Improved awareness of relevant legislative frameworks linked to domestic abuse (DfE Guidance on RSHE, DA Act 2021, Keeping Children Safe in Education, etc).
