**Places are limited, advance booking is required**
Please email Lyndsey@icsh.ie to book your place
Most often, the victims of domestic violence are women and children and almost all will come in contact with your services at some point. Domestic violence is often a hidden aspect and not the presenting problem. To ensure victim safety, staff need to know the signs, indications, and consequences of abuse, to know how to respond in an appropriate way and to be able to make referrals, as appropriate, to a specialist service, where women will be supported to make changes in their lives at a pace that suits their situation.
Appropriate training is essential to improving understanding of Domestic Violence and consequently, to ensure a consistent, appropriate, and culturally competent response to persons presenting to services. This workshop will provide training on how to recognise, respond and refer when working with individuals or families who may be experiencing or impacted by Domestic Abuse.
