Therapeutically working with domestic abuse: exploring relationship dynamics and safely managing risk

Go Back


When working with a person involved in domestic abuse, it can be a challenging working relationship.

Domestic abuse often extends beyond physical violence. It can involve emotional abuse, destruction of property, isolation from friends and family or other sources of support. It can impose control over money, food, personal items, transport and communication.

Domestic abuse is often witnessed by children and there may be an overlap of violence or abuse between adults and children. With divided loyalties there can often be unwanted acceptance of domestic abuse with family members.

This workshop will challenge your views and approach and will provide a greater understanding of domestic abuse, the dynamics of relationships, support available and will develop personal confidence and awareness in identifying and safely managing risks in your work.

The workshop will be facilitator led in a caring, confidential and supportive way through presentation, open discussion and small group task working.

A full workshop handout will be supplied along with references to further support services available.
