Domestic abuse is an incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening and violent behaviour, in the majority of cases by a partner or ex-partner, but may also be a family member. The aim of this Domestic Abuse including Coercion and Control Training is; to help raise awareness and increase recognition of domestic abuse and coercive control; understand the associated risk and protective factors; develop an understanding of why people may be abusive in relationships and how to manage this risk. This event will include training on the DASH-RIC (Domestic Abuse and Honour Based Violence Risk Checklist) using a case study to practice the use of the tool. Helpful resources will be shared with delegates, including safety planning, guidance on completion of the DASH-RIC and how to refer into their local MARAC. Resources on support for survivors and those who perpetrate domestic abuse will also be shared.
