Level 2: Domestic abuse understanding and response
We're passionate about helping churches feel confident that they know what to do when domestic abuse is disclosed.
Our level 2 course will build on the basic knowledge on the subject of domestic abuse and provide insights into the links between faith and domestic abuse, coercion and control and trauma-informed responses.
This course provides a comprehensive overview of the root causes of domestic abuse and its impact on victims and survivors. It will enable you to more effectively respond to a disclosure of abuse, covering:
- How the Bible informs our understanding of domestic abuse and how to respond
- 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.
The Level 2 Training runs either as a one-day course on Saturdays, or you can cover the content over three evenings, from 7.30-9pm. Currently, all our training happens via Zoom, and sessions are recorded so you can catch up on any you miss. The course costs £50 per person to attend.
