NEW COURSE - Understanding the Dynamics of Domestic Abuse
We have recently introduced training which explores the complexities of domestic abuse, its impact on wellbeing and how to recognise, respond and intervene to support victims in the workplace.
In January, the Government called on employers to “burst the stigma associated with domestic abuse”. Our training offers employers the opportunity to assist them to do so.
Delivered by an experienced subject expert, the content can be flexible with the course length dependent on the topics chosen to be covered. In line with all our courses, training is currently being delivered in a live, virtual, interactive format, with onsite face-to-face training possible if appropriate conditions are fully adhered to.
