How much do you know about the issues of honour-based violence and forced marriage? This abuse is often used as a means of control, with the cycle beginning when victims are children and continuing into adult life.

One of the biggest problems is that if the victims are not getting the right support from the authorities then they may feel unable to make a complaint.

Honour-Based Violence and Forced Marriage remain persistent issues in society. This course aims to shed light on the intricacies of ‘honour’ crimes. We will offer valuable insights into their historical context and relevance within specific communities. Additionally, we will examine the prevalence of these crimes and explore important definitions. Furthermore, we will delve into the identification of individuals at risk, the motivations within families, the impact on victims, factors that exacerbate these crimes, indicators of risk, existing obstacles, and the legal framework surrounding them. By the end of this course you will have the confidence to keep those around you safe and supported.

On completion of the course, which contains additional resource materials, useful links and five refresher guides, you will automatically get a certificate with your name, CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.
