Reducing the Harmful effects of exposure to Domestic Violence & Abuse on Children and Young People

Friday 27 Nov 2020

West One De Vere, London

NEW: We are pleased to offer the option to attend this masterclass as a virtual online course; find out more about our Virtual Training.

The Home Office classifies Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA) as "Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence and abuse between those aged 16 or over, who are or have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender and sexuality.” The Children Act (Section 31, Children Act 1989, amended 2002) states that “children who witness domestic violence suffer emotional and psychological maltreatment”. It is estimated 1 in 7 UK children will be exposed to DVA. 

This CPD certified masterclass will consider the role of toxic stress and trauma in the pathway to interpersonal violence between parents, and the climate of violence which harms the mental health and development of children and young people. A trauma-informed model of identification, risk assessment, protection and modular intervention will be outlined to reduce the harmful effects of Domestic Violence and Abuse. 

Current research will be reviewed demonstrating the extensive role of toxic stress and traumatic responses shaping the responses of abused parents – mothers, and abusive partners, and inter-generationally their children resulting in a climate of violence harming health and development.

The masterclass will also cover the Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) approach - a program, organization, or system that realises the widespread impact of trauma and understands potential paths for recovery; and responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices.
