Engaging with Men Who Abuse Women Partners
Historically professionals dealing with domestic abuse have struggled to engage with men who are abusive to women partners. Research suggests that the reasons for this include fear of challenging men who have been violent, fear of inadvertently increasing risks to the men's partners and a lack of confidence/knowledge in how to work with these men.
This course aims to deal with these and other obstacles to engaging with abusive men. The trainers are from Caledonian Edinburgh and Working With Men.
