Understanding the Dynamics of Domestic Abuse – Professional Curiosity Saves Lives
This interactive and thought-provoking training seeks to develop professional’s knowledge around the devastating impact of domestic abuse on adults and children. This domestic abuse training challenges the myths and stereotypes around abuse. This course equips delegates with the knowledge and confidence to ask the question, better understand the dynamics of abuse, how to signpost victims to lifesaving services and schemes both nationally and locally. This course gives staff the confidence to be professionally curious and think the unthinkable. The course will examine the dynamics around coercive control, why victims find it hard to disclose and leave, and some of the tactics used by perpetrators. It will develop other areas of additional vulnerability such as age, disability, pregnancy. We will show how professionals can reduce the risk of homicide, sharing lessons learned and the concept of professional helplessness.

Why undertake a Domestic Abuse Course?
The recent Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse, Consultation Response and Draft Bill (HM Government 2019) highlighted the top 3 professional groups that needed to do more to recognise the signs of domestic abuse, Education being one. This training is embedded in the principles of “Getting it right first time” and supporting professionals in what is a complex, challenging and emotive area. Survivors of abuse say they are more likely to disclose if asked the question and dealt with in an empathetic manner by confident professionals. This training is critical in improving the lives of many suffering in silence and delivering against the key objective of safeguarding. The training is targeted at a whole school approach for all staff, as domestic abuse is “Everyone’s business”.
