Managing The Secondary Effects of Working with Trauma (CPD Accredited)

This webinar will be of interest to a wide range of professionals working with people who have been affected by trauma. We will look at some of the key ways in which having close contact with trauma survivors can impact on practitioners and discuss how we can look after ourselves when working with trauma. There will be space to reflect on what you are able to put into practice for yourself as well as the support you need from your employer to maintain your wellbeing.

Domestic Abuse and Alcohol

Alcohol is well known to be linked with a greater risk of domestic abuse happening, and during COVID-19 there has been evidence of an increase in both alcohol consumption and domestic abuse. But what is the connection? And how can we support survivors who are affected by alcohol and domestic abuse? This webinar will provide an overview of the current research about the links between alcohol use and domestic abuse and offer guidance to working with families living with these issues. 

Supporting Survivors During Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on our lives. The initial lockdown in the U.K. and the continued restrictions on movement and social interaction resulted in a significant increase in the rates of domestic abuse at a time when professionals and services were under even greater strain than usual to support and meet their service users' needs. This course provides specific information about how to support survivors of domestic abuse and their children. We hope it will help you to work with people affected by domestic abuse during these challenging times.
