DVA: The facts and ways to work with both parties
About this event
This day will help you to not only understand domestic violence and abuse (DVA) more and what it is but also to help you recognise when it may be taking place and what you can effectively do to help both parties move forward.
What is DVA:
Any act carried out to another human being which is detrimental to their health or well being either, mentally, emotionally, sexually, physically or financially. To themselves or others that they experience, see or hear, which they have no input to control, or have an effective voice to stop.
The day will include:
- disclosure boundaries, intensity and emotional self-care if needed
- what is DV? power-point and discussion
- stats and information: home office, agencies and Women’s Aid reports, ethical guidelines
- identifying it in the room: signs and signals, experiential input, therapeutic interventions, change of intervention by a therapist, record keeping, monitoring
- support, agency guidelines, supervision and self-care
- legal responsibilities, therapeutic assisted disclosure, who, how, where
- procedures and practices, notification, support, record keeping/handing over
- support for perpetrators
- it nestles nicely with the next day which is about abuse and how to work with and understand the dynamics of abuse and how you might work with clients safely and professionally
