We would like to share with our membership two seminar opportunities on how to 'Recognise and Respond to Domestic Abuse'. 

The seminars focus on recognising domestic abuse in our clients, the broader community and in the work place. The seminars are connected by a 'networking lunch' and delegates can opt to attend one seminar or both.

The seminar agendas are as follows;

Seminar 1: Recognising & responding to Domestic Abuse 9:00am - 1:00pm

This course explores the experience and impact of living with domestic abuse and provides delegates with tools and knowledge to identify and respond to domestic abuse effectively.  This course will be of value if you have contact with clients who may have experienced, or be experiencing domestic abuse.  The learning is also applicable within the context of contact with the broader community.

The outcomes with regard to this course will include:

  • An increased understanding of domestic abuse, the definition and its components
  • An increased awareness of coercive control
  • An improved awareness of the indicators of domestic abuse
  • An improved understanding of the impact of living with domestic abuse
  • An increased understanding of risk factors with relation to domestic abuse
  • An improved understanding of how to respond safely to domestic abuse
  • An awareness of referral pathways and signposting options 
Seminar 1: Recognising & responding to Domestic Abuse in the Workplace 1:30pm - 5:30pm

This course explores domestic and abuse and the impacts within a work setting.  It will enable participants to gain a better understanding of domestic abuse but also considerations for workplaces in relation to their employees.  This course may appeal to Managers, supervisors and human resource related roles.

The outcomes with regard to this course will include:

  • An increased understanding of domestic abuse, the definition and its components, including coercive control
  • An improved awareness of the indicators of domestic abuse, including in the workplace
  • An improved understanding of the impact of living with domestic abuse 
  • An increased awareness of how workplaces and employers can respond appropriately and effectively to domestic abuse in the workplace
  • An increased understanding of resources available for employers, including draft policies and resource hubs
  •  An improved understanding of key resources and referral options for people experiencing domestic abuse

Please be aware the focus of these courses is recognising and responding effectively to domestic abuse and though there will be some reference to the legal context -  they are not designed to cover the legal framework or legislation in depth.

The course provider is Equation and as a charity they provide specialised in-house training, which we are able to offer to our members.

Equation’s goal as a charity is for everyone to have equal, healthy relationships, in a society free from domestic abuse, sexual violence and gender inequality.

1 in 4 women will be abused by a partner, ex or family member at some point in their lives and on average 2 women a week lose their lives because of domestic violence.

Working primarily in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, Equation delivers education to the whole community to prevent domestic abuse and sexual violence, promote gender equality and raise aspirations for healthy relationships. We provide practical tools and guidance to support the well-being and safety needs of survivors.
