Dublin: Training on Best Practice Responses to Women experiencing Domestic Violence

7 November 2019

Women's Aid has announced details of our One Day Best Practice Responses to Women experiencing Domestic Violence. The one-day training is suitable for all staff, board members and students looking to enhance individual and/or organisational understanding of and responses to the issue of domestic violence.

Why Attend the Training?

As domestic violence affects 1 in 5 women in Ireland, anyone working with women can encounter domestic violence through their work. The response that women receive when they disclose their experiences to services can have a major impact on their safety and well-being, and that of their children. Whatever your work role, this one-day training will give you the foundation knowledge and skills necessary to appropriately respond to domestic violence and to link women to support services both locally and nationally.

Participants will have an increased understanding and information regarding:

  • Dynamics of domestic violence;
  • Forms of abuse used by perpetrators;
  • Short- and long-term impacts on women living with abuse;
  • Potential barriers for women in accessing support;
  • Safety and confidentiality issues associated with domestic violence;
  • Safe and effective engagement with women experiencing abuse; and
  • Referral options for women affected by domestic violence


We are offering this training on:

  • 7th November 2019.

Please note that registration is at 9:45 a.m and the training is from 10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Venue: Women's Aid, 5 Wilton Place, Dublin 2.
