Description

Child Focused Domestic Violence Training

Trainer - Ginny Kocik

This training will offer the opportunity for therapists, Social Care and education staff to reflect and consider domestic violence from the perspective of the child.

Children make up 50% of the refuge community, however funding and interventions often lean towards supporting women when fleeing domestic abuse. The training day will focus on the child’s experience of domestic abuse and the wider community issues surrounding this.

The training will include theory, research and practical exercises that can be used to support children who have experienced living with domestic violence:

  • Domestic violence through the child’s eyes
  • Children and young people living in risky environments
  • Domestic violence and child development
  • The child and the perpetrator
  • VAWG strategy – new government initiative

Ginny is a Dramatherapist and is currently the domestic violence lead for Place2Be Brent. She has a background in working in women’s services and has delivered individual and group work to women and children within refuges and in the community. Ginny continues to work with local councils and charities to develop strategies around therapeutic intervention for children affected by domestic abuse.
