Domestic abuse understanding and response: foundation course
We're passionate about helping churches feel confident that they know what to do when domestic abuse is disclosed.
Our foundation course will help you explore key questions around the issue of domestic abuse. This course will give you a comprehensive understanding of what domestic abuse involves, how you can spot the signs and how best to respond effectively.
This course provides a comprehensive overview of what domestic abuse is and how you can respond. It will enable you to more effectively respond to a disclosure of abuse, covering:
- Whether the church is part of the solution/problem
- Using the Duluth Model to gain further understanding about the way abuse is perpetrated and its complexities
- The impact of domestic abuse on survivors and how this should inform our responses
- How to begin engaging with a perpetrator.
We've got a variety of options to enable you to take this course flexibly around your work, church or home commitments. Sign up now for a Saturday training day, or to cover this course content over a few mornings or evenings.
