Workshop aims: This half day workshop aims to increase practitioner and manager confidence in recognising and working with people who have care and support needs and are experiencing domestic abuse, to lead to better outcomes for this client group. We will discuss recent developments in legislation around controlling and coercive behaviour, and the link between this and domestic abuse. Focussing on the evidence around domestic abuse of older people, we’ll look at messages from research to inform practice before considering how to make safe enquiries. We finish by signposting to further resources and materials that attendees can use to enhance their knowledge around this issue.

Audience: Managers, providers, social workers and senior managers who are looking for an introductory understanding of coercive control and its relationship to domestic abuse and safeguarding.

Learning objectives: After this 3 hour introductory workshop, attendees will be able to:

Describe models of the use of power and control in intimate relationships within a broader social context.
Describe the role of coercive control within domestic abuse.
Outline and fulfil the roles and responsibilities that social care workers will need to use in working with coercive control of people with social care needs in safeguarding situations.
Use research findings about the experience and impact of domestic abuse and coercive control to inform their decisions and practice
Use the principles of safe enquiry in their work.
