Our Expert Training
Working with families
affected by domestic abuse
This training programme is focused on developing practical skills when working with families and increasing the confidence of practitioners when engaging parents in this difficult area.
Vulnerability and Attachment
This training day is designed to help social workers feel more confident in their work with clients who have an attachment to their abuser and where there is a likelihood of
reconciliation following separation.
Domestic Abuse Risk Assessment
When working in domestic abuse professionals can place too much emphasis on clinical judgement and ignore vital static risk indicators. The training in domestic violence risk
assessment has been designed with the lessons from serious case reviews in mind.
