Working with women who use violence and abuse in intimate relationships

22 May @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

£152.51 – £198.08


Training course overview

Women’s use of violence and abuse in intimate relationships differs from men’s in terms of motivation, context and impact. Women are capable of and do use violence and abuse in intimate relationships, whether heterosexual or same-sex. Understanding the role of gender is important for the delivery of safe and effective interventions. This training course provides participants with knowledge and skills they can apply with women who use violence and abuse in intimate relationships.

What will I learn?

Participants will:

  • develop knowledge and understanding of the ways women use intimate partner violence, including how these may differ from men’s abusive behaviour;
  • develop understanding of categories of women identified as perpetrators of domestic violence and abuse;
  • learn how to identify who is doing what to whom and with what consequences;
  • develop skills in assessing the risks from and to women who use intimate partner violence
  • practice using skills in responding appropriately to these women

Who is this course suitable for?

This course is aimed at:

  • Frontline Workers working with, or intending to work with, women who use violence
  • Frontline Workers wanting to understand the differences between men and women’s abusive behaviour
