About the Children and Young People Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit Programme

Rock Pool’s Recovery Toolkit programmes use a trauma-informed psycho educational model. We facilitate a safe space to ensure learning and promote collaboration. Our training is designed to be strengths based and skills building. We believe that by giving individuals knowledge we enable them to better understand and deal with their previous experiences. Programme participants are given practical strategies to help them thrive in their daily lives by developing resilience, increasing hope and enabling recovery.

The Children and Young People Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit is an 8-week programme for any young person that has witnessed or experienced domestic abuse and are able to take part in a group. It is unique in its approach using a combination of trauma-informed resilience focused and specific trauma focused cognitive behaviour therapy and person-centred therapeutic principles.

The Children and Young People Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit programme is written as a compliment to the Adult Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit. It is informed by many of the same therapeutic models and where possible is to be run concurrently with the Adult Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit. This programme has been written for children who are no longer with the abusive parent.

Aims

  • To help children and young people to become experts in their own recovery
  • To allow children and young people to understand that they are not responsible for what has happened to them
  • To allow children and young people to understand that they are not blamed for those actions or decisions taken at the time of the abuse that may in retrospect be found not to have been safe

Outcomes

  • To help children and young people come to terms with their experiences
  • To help children and young people develop a positive lifestyle and coping strategies
  • To help children and young people acknowledge that coping strategies used under duress may not be helpful in their recovery and development of a new life free from abuse

“I am a child support working in a women’s refuge and have worked alongside many professionals supporting children who have experienced domestic abuse and this course is by far the most effective support I have found available for children who have experienced domestic violence.”

Course Delegate

This 2 day training course will provide delegates with a comprehensive manual which includes guidance for facilitators, weekly session plans, all handout and materials to run the programme.  Delegates also receive a memory stick with all the programme handouts included. The price of this training course is £500 plus VAT. This includes lunch and refreshments throughout the training days. There is no need to have any previous group work experience to attend this course and run the programme.

There are conditions attached to delivering the Children and Young People Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit programme, as highlighted below.

Following the training, the newly trained facilitator will be responsible for ensuring participants of their facilitated Children and Young People Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit complete anonymised feedback forms about their delivery and the Toolkit programme and return them to Rock Pool. It will be standard practice for the facilitator to return an anonymised data return form to Rock Pool every time the Children and Young People Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit programme is completed. This will then enable us to put some measurements in place and we will be able to share the outcomes with all organisations who run the programme.
