Course description

This course is for practitioners in organisations who have set up, or are in the process of setting up, a one-to-one intervention programme for domestic violence perpetrators. 

The course explores the differences between group and individual work, and how to use the Respect Individual Work Programme with perpetrators. The training is participatory and practical, with a strong focus on working interactively with the programme materials. 

What will I learn?  

  • Learn why the individual programme was developed, what settings it is designed for, and what agency structures are necessary to support safe practice 
  • Understand the challenges related to working one-to-one with perpetrators 
  • Explore the balance between programme fidelity and working responsively with individual issues 
  • Develop skills in analysing incidents of abusive behaviour 
  • Practice challenging denial, minimisation and justification of abusive behaviours 
  • Support clients to choose and practice a broad spectrum of non-abusive behaviours using a range of exercises  

Who should attend? 

  • Practitioners working with perpetrators on a one-to-one basis who want to improve their existing skills 
  • Practitioners who want to start an individual domestic violence perpetrator programme 
  • Practitioners with an in-depth understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence and abuse
