The Dynamics Of Domestic Abuse: What Everyone Should Know

With years of frontline experience amongst our highly skilled and passionate team we can offer Domestic Abuse training across all disciplines. This 1-day training is aimed at any frontline professionals wanting to develop an awareness and understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse, including coercive control.

The training seeks to achieve this by exploring the 5 R’s model with delegates that will cover Recognise, Respond, Risk, Refer and Record. At the end of the training all delegates will feel confident in recognising where domestic abuse might be happening and knowing how to respond in order to ensure safe and informed approaches to individuals.


This 1-day training course is up to 25 delegates and can be delivered both in the room and online.
