Free course to equip individuals to identify and provide support to children and young people
We are aware of the effect of domestic violence (DV) on children raised in a household where this behaviour takes place. Following this, we have commissioned a set of training courses on ‘Domestic Violence and Young people’ for 2012/13, being provided by AVA (www.avaproject.org.uk).
Spaces are still available on the last free Domestic Violence and Young People training course that has run 3 times previously this financial year. It is also an excellent opportunity in the current economic climate and is useful to all professionals working with children, young people and families!
To equip individuals to identify and provide support to children and young people who are victims, witnesses and perpetrators of Domestic Violence, including child-parent abuse. This will be achieved by considering the impact of Domestic Violence on attitudes, behaviours and expectations of relationships of children and young people and the risks that they may be experiencing. It will enable participants to update their Domestic Violence knowledge as well as learning more about appropriate services and interventions.
- Understand the range of behaviours and actions which constitute Domestic Violence
- Recognise the impact of Domestic Violence of children and young people in relation to their physical, emotional and social development and well being
- Learn how to identify young people engaged with and affected by Domestic Violence
