Coercive controlling behaviour
On 29 April 2015, the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Bill received Royal Assent and became an Act.
Social housing providers in Wales are uniquely placed to help individuals experiencing domestic abuse. In partnership with Welsh Women’s Aid, CIH Cymru is pleased to offer a new suite of training designed to enhance your understanding of violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence (VAWDASV). We are offering three different courses that will raise your awareness of VAWDASV, build confidence in identifying signs of VAWDASV in the home and help to improve how disclosures are managed and how survivors are supported.
Coercive control underlies most instances of domestic abuse. It is the seemingly small issues, which when looked at together, show systematic controlling behaviour. This course will help you to understand the insidious nature of coercive control and the impact on victims/survivors.
- Recognise coercive control tactics and understand their impact on victims, including children
- Understand applicable legislation
- Apply knowledge of coercive and controlling behaviour and legislation in order to:
- Enhance your own record keeping
- Better assess the needs of your service users who are being coercively controlled
- Understand the legislation to provide valuable evidence and statements to the Police
This one day training course is delivered by Welsh Women's Aid
