Domestic Abuse - Two Day Course and Advanced One Day Course

Domestic abuse has a major impact on the health and welfare of women and children worldwide.

The British Crime Survey 2006 reported that 1 in 3 women experience domestic abuse at some time in their lives. There are also many men who experience domestic abuse and experiences for men and women can either be in heterosexual or same-gender relationships.

In England and Wales, two to three women per week are murdered by a current or former partner.

All of these factors can have a devastating impact on children and young people. To fully understand their experiences we must examine the dynamic of the abusive relationship and the risks it poses.
