This course is designed for 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 difference between group and individual work, when individual work might be more effective, 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.

- Understand the balance between programme fidelity and working responsively with individual issues
