Understanding Domestic Abuse and the Restorative Process

With 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men experiencing domestic abuse in their lifetime (UK national statistics) it is becoming one of society’s biggest problems in the UK.   The heavy involvement of statutory and voluntary agency’s e.g. police, social services, drug, alcohol & substance misuse services, health services, mental health services and education, domestic abuse is fast becoming a financial burden too.  

With 65% of children on the child protection register having experienced domestic abuse there is a close correlation between child abuse and domestic abuse. However, the training availability for understanding the effects of domestic abuse on men, women and children is insufficient even within social work, childcare, support work, police, teaching, medical, legal, health and education.

The course outline

Understanding Domestic abuse and the Restorative Process is about developing an understanding of the dynamics of abusive relationships, the effect on male, female and child victims and the restorative process.  The course provides an insight into the experience of victims of domestic abuse and how they can be helped to understand, recover, repair and build a life free from domestic abuse. 

The target market

The course has been designed to give the professional an opportunity to build on their skills and progress into roles within social care, teaching, child care, police, health care, education and many other professions.  The course also enables victims of domestic abuse to follow a journey of self discovery and begin the restorative process.

The aim of the course

The professional learner will understand how a victim’s life becomes a cycle of fear, self depreciation, and chaos.  Repeating the same cycle in not only intimate relationship but also friendships.  Professionals will be able to support a victim through the journey of self discovery and victims completing the course will travel the journey of self discovery for themselves.

A victim completing this course will have access to a gateway to break the old cycle of abusive relationships through gaining knowledge, understanding and recognition by following a journey of self discovery.
