Course description

This course is a a consolidation of "Young People and Abuse in Intimate Relationships" and "Young People who are abusive to their parents/carers".

This live interactive virtual classroom, will be delivered through Microsoft Teams. The one day seminar focuses on domestic abuse, both experienced and perpetrated by young people in their relationships. It includes a focus on domestic abuse within young people’s own intimate relationships as well as considering the emerging area of child and adolescent to parent abuse.

This course is appropriate for practitioners who wish to improve their knowledge base and practical skills when working with young people and their parents/carers who are experiencing abuse within their relationships.

It is not suitable for practitioners who are very experienced in these areas or who have already completed the two classroom courses relating to Young people and Abusive Relationships within the last 3 years.

Important note: It is essential that attendees have completed the 3 on-line domestic abuse training modules before coming on this course. It is also desirable that attendees have also completed the 2 day “Whole Family Approach to Domestic Abuse” training.
