Why Choose This Course

The main aim of the Domestic Abuse Awareness course is to enable recognition of abuse so that it can be brought to the attention of appropriate parties - it does not advise on immediate intervention at an individual level.

Though instructor led, it requires the learner to engage with what is being taught and provides a number of opportunities for subject discussion.  Driven by qualitative data and the work of the Freedom Programme, the course is constantly updated to ensure it is in line with modern practices and research.  Common myths around Domestic Abuse are debunked by focusing on types of abuse that aren't necessarily physical in nature, including:

  • Psychological Abuse,
  • Emotional Abuse, and
  • Economic Abuse

"Very good session with very helpful prompted discussion."
