This course is designed for practitioners who would like to understand the definition of domestic abuse and gain insight into the dynamics of domestic abuse within intimate partner and adult familial relationships. The course will consider why people stay in abusive relationships and the barriers to reporting family members and intimate partners. Attending the course will help practitioners recognise indicators of domestic abuse, learn how best to ask about domestic abuse and effectively provide support to those who have disclosed abuse. The course will include an overview of understanding risk, basic safety planning options for survivors and information on specialist support in Lambeth.


By attending this course, participants will:

• understand how domestic abuse is defined, what it includes and know its prevalence

• appreciate and examine the barriers faced by survivors in disclosing and/or leaving an abusive relationship

• describe indicators of abuse

• ask the right questions and respond appropriately to disclosures of domestic abuse

• understand what “high risk” in relation to domestic abuse means

• have gained knowledge of Lambeth’s services and be able to refer appropriately
