Enhance your knowledge of gender-based violence and the forms of domestic abuse
Domestic violence is a global health issue that can take many forms and affect anyone. Health and social care professionals play an important role in recognising and helping victims of violent and abusive relationships.
On this course, you will address the role of gender in domestic violence and learn to recognise the various forms of violence and abuse. You will reflect on the impact of domestic violence and understand your responsibilities as a health or social care worker. By completing this course, you will have gained the confidence to help support domestic violence victims and survivors.
This course is for health and social care professionals, including nurses, doctors, family support workers, and community workers. It will also appeal to lawyers, school teachers, police, and anyone familiar with victims of domestic violence.
This course has been designed to help practitioners who work with victims of domestic violence and abuse to provide effective support. We regret that we are unable to provide direct support to victims in this course.
