Scottish Women's Aid
This session is aimed at front-line staff who work directly with women, children and young people and who recognise that an understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse will help them in their work.
By the end of the session delegates will be able to:
• Reframe domestic abuse as a course of coercive and controlling conduct which produces compliance in the victimised partner through fear and the creation of a sense of entrapment
• Appreciate the impact of domestic abuse on those who experience it and how it affects their behaviour and choices
• Understand the main issues of providing a sensitive and appropriate service to women, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse
Participants need no prior learning or experience of domestic abuse related issues.
Your facilitator, Nel Whiting, is a Learning & Development Worker with Scottish Women’s Aid.
Coffee will be provided from 9:00am.
