Young People in Abusive Relationships Training

Young people can experience sexual violence, physical violence and stalking as well as emotional abuse in their relationships, whether within intimate relationships or from their peers. 

Professionals who work with young people often feel they lack the skills or confidence to broach this difficult topic with them and unsure of the best response when disclosures arise. We know that young people prefer turn to their peers for support, but the attitudes and influences towards abuse amongst young people can lead to abusive behaviour being condoned and normalised rather than challenged.

 

This course aims to offer guidance on discussing these issues with young people  and offering interventions to those in abusive relationships.

  • To provide delegates with the confidence to ask young people about their relationships

  • To improve knowledge of how to respond effectively and supportively to disclosures of abuse

  • To develop their knowledge and understanding of the services available to help young people in abusive intimate relationships

  • To enhance their understanding of what defines relationship or domestic abuse and more specifically, what is deemed ‘high risk' abuse within adolescent relationships

  • To help understand how adolescents may be vulnerable as a result of their life stage

  • To provide opportunities to share experience and best practice with other professionals
