About the Combined Adult and Children and Young People Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit Programmes

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 Adult Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit is a 12 week programme that helps participants understand the impact of having experienced domestic abuse, explaining how they were prevented from leaving an abusive relationship and the thinking patterns they developed as a method of managing the risk which can hold them back moving forward. The individual’s own strengths, resources and coping skills and resilience are reinforced contributing to their own health and wellness on a long-term basis.

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.

“From the first session the children absolutely blossomed, they opened up and talked about their thoughts and feelings and it was clear to see how much they enjoyed finding their voices.”

Programme Facilitator

“It was good to deal with my negative thoughts and feeling better about myself and how to use techniques to deal with the rest of my life, this course has made me into somewhere near the me I want to be. Every aspect of my confidence has changed for the better, being able to talk openly, trusting people again and generally having a life to live.”

Programme Partipant

This 3 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 £750 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 Adult and/or Children and Young People Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit programmes, as highlighted below. Following the training, the newly trained facilitator will be responsible for ensuring participants of their facilitated Adult and/or 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 Adult and/or 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. Facilitators will agree to sign up to a Continuing Professional Development event after two years and before three years post training, to maintain their licence/accreditation.  At this event we will update all facilitators on the programme developments, learning, etc.
