Domestic abuse is a serious and widespread problem affecting nearly 10% of women and 5% of men every year. Domestic violence leads to, on average, two women being murdered each week and 30 men each year, according to statistics from Living Without Abuse.
In this course you will learn who is at risk and how the law can help. You will also learn about domestic abuse from both perspectives – the victim and the perpetrator.
You’ll learn about the problem of domestic abuse and the legislation in place to deal with offenders and help support victims in this three-module course. You’ll also learn about the behaviour of the perpetrator and the motivations of those who inflict domestic abuse, before viewing the situation through the eyes of a victim.
On completion of this domestic abuse training course, you will automatically get a certificate with your name, your CPD hours, the date and learning objectives covered.
The domestic violence training course contains additional, useful resource materials for your reference, useful links and a refresher guide to come back to.
This course is intended for anyone who needs domestic abuse and family violence training. It can form part of an induction programme for new starters but is also intended for those wanting to improve their knowledge and continue their professional development.
