The Surviving Process: Effective Interventions Through a Survivor’s Journey

Leaving an abusive relationship is often described as a process rather than a single act but what does this mean exactly? How can we help rather than hinder this process? What do survivors say makes a service effective for them? This seminar will examine these questions, focusing on how to strengthen and improve engagement and to reduce ‘revolving door’ cases. Drawing on various models and academic literature, participants will be provided with practical skills to support survivors in their journey to an abuse-free life.

Listening to children experiencing domestic abuse

The aim of this training is to build a solid understanding of the right of children experiencing domestic abuse to have a say in decisions affecting their lives. Using learning from recent participation projects with children experiencing domestic abuse in Scotland, delegates will hear children's views about how decision makers can better hear their voices and support them to enact their rights. There will be a particular focus on how practitioners can support children to make their voices heard in the Children's Hearings System and civil court proceedings. This seminar is aimed at those who work directly with children experiencing domestic abuse and those with responsibility for decision making.
