What training are we offering?
Working with male victims of domestic abuse
This training course helps frontline workers support male victims of domestic abuse. Participants will identify the domestic abuse experiences of male victims and the barriers to help-seeking; and learn how to use the Respect Toolkit for Work with Male Victims of Domestic Abuse, so they can better meet the needs of the men they work with.
Working with women using violence in intimate relationships
Women’s use of violence and abuse in intimate relationships differs from men’s in terms of motivation, context and impact. Women are capable of and do use violence and abuse in intimate relationships, whether heterosexual or same sex. Understanding the role of gender is important for the delivery of safe and effective interventions. This training course provides participants with knowledge about these differences and informs practice when working with women who use violence and abuse in intimate relationships.
Better engagement with perpetrators
This course will develop skills to engage in a respectful and supportive manner with perpetrators of domestic abuse. The course will give participants skills, such as early identification techniques, methods to increase engagement and motivation for change, and correct referral procedures and pathways. The course is ideal for anyone who wants to refresh their knowledge or would like an introduction to working with perpetrators.
Adolescent to parent violence and abuse
This course will increase participants’ awareness of the dynamics of adolescent to parent violence. It will explore current models of work, risk factors and common patterns of behaviour linked to this issue. The course gives special consideration to the difficulties that frontline workers may face when engaging with families.
