Domestic Violence Awareness Online Training

24 February 2022

About this Training

Women’s Aid has developed a half day Online Training programme focused on recognising and responding to domestic abuse. The training is for anyone who in their professional capacity interacts with survivors of domestic abuse.  Training is delivered on Zoom. Each participant must have access to a private space, a good internet connection, a computer, or another device to take part in the training. 

Why avail of the Training?

As domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women in Ireland, anyone working with women can encounter domestic violence through their work. The responses women receive when seeking initial support from frontline services can have a major impact on their safety and well-being, and that of their children. Whatever your work role, this training will give you the foundation knowledge to appropriately respond and to link women to support services both locally and nationally.


What will I gain from this training?


The training is framed around the 3 Rs – Recognise, Respond, and Refer.


Recognise - Dynamics of domestic abuse


• Forms and tactics of abuse used by the perpetrator and the intention behind them


• Impacts on the victim/survivor and their coping mechanisms


• Indicators that may alert us a woman is experiencing domestic abuse


Respond - Learn victim-centred principles which should guide your response


• Understand the barriers facing victim/survivors in seeking and accessing support


• Learn how to safely support a disclosure




• Increase knowledge about referral options to specialist domestic abuse services and what they can offer


The training is designed to upskill those supporting women experiencing domestic violence. If you are a woman experiencing domestic violence, or if you are concerned on behalf of someone else, please contact Women’s Aid 24hr National Freephone Helpline on 1800 341 900.


Important: Please note that the training may not be suitable for anyone currently experiencing, or who has recently experienced, domestic violence as the material may be distressing. If you have any questions or concerns about participating in the training, please feel free to contact us.
