Running groups with men using intimate partner violence: Essential Skills for Group Work Facilitators (6 days)

Course aims: 

This is a highly experiential course for professionals who work with perpetrators in group settings.

This training covers a range of exercises facilitators can use and adapt for core sessions of any programme they choose to use. This covers:

  • Checking in with the perpetrator at the start of sessions
  • Assessing perpetrators
  • Holding perpetrators accountable for their behaviour
  • Analysing violent incidents
  • Sexual respect
  • Safeguarding

This course’s main objective is to train you to be an excellent, confident facilitator who can motivate perpetrators to want to change. You will practice running groups whilst exercising empathy without collusion, and challenging abusive behaviours and attitudes.

Please note: Respect does not prescribe one model of groupwork with perpetrators. Rather in this training we cover core elements that need to be included in every programme, and discuss theories behind existing programmes. This allows for some flexibility when it comes to an organisation deciding upon which model it will use.

Women using violence and abuse in intimate relationships (1 day course)

Course aims:

Some women use violence and abuse in intimate relationships, although it has been found that women’s violence tends to be reactionary, shaped by gender roles, and manifests itself differently from men’s violence. However, sometimes the woman is the primary aggressor and it is important to be able to recognise the signs and know how to respond appropriately to increase victim and children’s safety.

In the complex dynamics of domestic abuse, it can be challenging at times to identify who is doing what to whom. This training course will increase your understanding on how men’s violence differs from women’s. We will provide you with tools to help you identify the primary aggressor, and how to respond if there is a female perpetrator taking into consideration their particular needs.
