Aim of the course
This short seminar aims to provide delegates with a brief introduction to the benefits of working with perpetrators and consequences of not doing so.
By the end of the seminar participants will have a better understanding of:
why people perpetrate domestic abuse.
the anxieties and hopes regarding involving perpetrators in managing domestic abuse risk.
what constitutes safe/unsafe engagement with perpetrators – including signposting to appropriate support.
The knowledge I gained from this training will be absolutely pivotal for my role!
