Gender Inequality: A Cause and Consequence of Violence Against Women – Half Day Training

Men’s violence against women is a cause and consequence of gender inequality. This is a widely accepted view but one that organisations often struggle to factor into their work addressing such violence and abuse.  But if gender inequality is truly a cause and consequence of violence against women we will not tackle the latter without confronting the former.

Domestic Abuse and Child Protection

The aim of this seminar is to build a solid understanding of the nature and scope of domestic abuse and its intersections with child protection, providing the delegates with the confidence and knowledge to deal with the issue effectively in their work setting.  The training has been developed by Scottish Women’s Aid with the expectation that delegates will have already attended domestic abuse training.

Understanding the Dynamics of Domestic Abuse

This evidence-based session is aimed at front-line staff who work directly with women, children and young people and who recognise that an understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse will help them in their work.  The session draws on up-to-date research and theorising about the issue.  Participants need no prior learning or experience of domestic abuse related issues.

Creating Environments for Women to Talk About Domestic Abuse

This training has been designed for workers whose role requires them to engage directly with women, children and young people affected by domestic abuse and form more in-depth relationships, providing practical and/or emotional support and advice services.  Delegates will explore the reasons why it is difficult for some women to talk about their experiences of domestic abuse, to feel greater confidence about asking, responding to and supporting a woman who discloses domestic abuse.  The course is suitable for those who want to become more confident about supporting women to talk about domestic abuse.  Delegates must have previously undertaken an Understanding the Dynamics of Domestic Abuse training day.
