Code: BH/20/1579 Domestic Abuse: An introduction to risks assessment, safety planning and Coersive Control (EVENT FULL)

This half day session will explore how Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA) and Coersive Control can present and affect people's lives and the role of professionals in intervening safely. Attendees will consider how to respond to disclosure of domestic abuse with empathy and how to assess someone's immediate safety, build an initial safety plan, refer to and liaise with specialist services. There are a number of courses that are also available on the learning gateway to further develop skills and specialist knowledge within this field.  

This course is primarily for frontline workers looking to increase their knowledge of DVA and who have a role in building support plans with a client who may have experienced domestic abuse.

Typically this level of training is for nurses, accident and emergency doctors, adult social care staff, ambulance staff, children's centre staff, children and family social care staff, GPs, mental health professionals, midwives, health visitors, paediatricians, health and social care professionals in education (including school nurses), prison staff and alcohol and drug misuse workers.
