Domestic and sexual violence, substance use and mental ill-health are three issues which often co-exist. And when they do, things can become complicated. This training is designed to ‘uncomplicate’ matters by raising awareness about how the three issues intersect and offer effective ways to engage with individuals and families who are affected by these issues.
This course is being run in partnership with GDASS (Gloucestershire Domestic Abuse Support Service).
- Understand the links between experiences of domestic and sexual violence, mental ill-health and substance use
- Understand the difficulties survivors with complex needs face in making change
- Become familiar with ways to encourage survivors to engage with services and how to meet their needs
- Understand the impact on children and how to work with the whole family
- Identify ways to increase safety for survivors and their children
- Know how to ask about each of the issues in an appropriate manner
- Have greater knowledge of possible referral pathways and support services
- Learn how to hold perpetrators accountable for their own violent and abusive behaviour
- Provide practical, adaptable tools which enable organisations to improve policy and practice
