Women’s Health Matters has developed a full-day, in-person training that has been co-produced and is co-delivered with victims/survivors of Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA). The training is designed to share our knowledge built from years of specialist work in the field of DVA.
The morning will focus on defining DVA, specifically highlighting ‘less recognised’ forms of abuse, who experiences abuse, (addressing additional vulnerabilities and barriers to accessing support) and typologies of abusers. There is a case study that focuses on the impact of DVA and information given on the updated 2021 DVA Abuse Act.
The afternoon session will focus on how to work with people who are experiencing DVA, we want to share with you the resources and tools we use to identify, record and manage risk.
The course will identify local (Leeds) and national resources and offer good practice ideas by giving you ‘Tips & Advice’ from women we’ve supported to help improve your response and practice.
To end the course we will look at professional self-care and boundaries, and we will provide opportunities to share your own experiences of good practice and support.
