It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
This course is the first of its kind in Scotland.
The aim is to “Ensure that safety of women and children is the primary goal of all work with male perpetrators” – ‘Respect’ Statement of Principles and Minimum Standards of Practice (2004).
Often, practitioners support families where domestic abuse is a central dynamic in the family home. While many receive comprehensive training on how to support survivors and their children impacted by domestic abuse, there are limited learning opportunities in working directly with the perpetrators. Understandably practitioners worry about increasing risk to women and children.
This training provides participants with an introduction and overview to engaging safely with male perpetrators of domestic abuse. It also looks at tactics commonly used by perpetrators of domestic abuse and effective communication methods that could be used to engage with them. It provides a safe space for practitioners to consider and discuss concerns, challenges, and solution for working with families experiencing domestic abuse.
