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.

Honour-Based Violence: Who is Doing What to Whom, and Why?

‘Honour-based violence’ is a range of abusive or violent acts (including, at its extreme, murder) motivated by a perceived loss of honour to family, community or an individual. A majority of victims & survivors of Honour-based violence in the UK are from Black Minority Ethnic (BME) communities. This seminar explores experiences of Honour-based violence, the social environments that support excuses used by perpetrators to commit ‘Honour’ crimes, and the impact on BME women, children and young people.

Why Doesn’t She Just Leave?

This training has previously been run as a seminar but, on the basis of feedback from delegates, has been expanded to a full day session.

One of the most frequently asked questions in relation to domestic abuse is ‘why doesn’t she just leave?’.  Leaving a perpetrator of domestic abuse is seen as the ultimate answer and it is one that many of our services focus upon.  Many practitioners feel frustration when a woman experiencing abuse stays with the perpetrator and, where children are involved, child protection is often invoked on the grounds that she is ‘failing to protect’ those children.  But is all domestic abuse experienced by those still living with their partner?  And does leaving a perpetrator really mean safety?  Furthermore, how easy is it simply to ‘leave’?
