Nationwide: Domestic Violence Awareness Online Training

17 September 2020

Time: 9.45am Registration.  Training session 10am-1pm.

This online training is suitable for 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

Please note that the training may not be suitable for anyone currently experiencing, or who has recently experienced, domestic violence as the training content may be distressing. If you are experiencing domestic violence or are concerned on behalf of someone else, please contact Women’s Aid National Freephone Helpline on 1800 341 900.
