BOOKING HAS NOW CLOSED

As part of Domestic Abuse Awareness Week 2017, SOS Domestic Abuse Projects is offering a series of free workshops to increase knowledge and awareness of domestic abuse in Southend.

Domestic Abuse - Break the Cycle of Teen Relationship Abuse is an interactive half-day awareness course providing an awareness of what Teen Relationship Abuse is, the impact it can have on young people, and how to spot warning signs.

By the end of the session participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the definition, prevalence and types of teen relationship abuse.
  • Have explored the effects of teen relationship abuse on victims’ wellbeing as well as other aspects of their lives
  • Have an understanding of the barriers victims face when seeking help
  • Be able to spot warning signs that indicate a young person may be experiencing teen relationship abuse
  • Be aware of safe and appropriate ways to talk with young people about your concerns and best practice responses to disclosures
  • Understand the choices and options open to victims
  • Be aware of referral pathways, overview of resources in Southend and outline of services that are available at SOSDAP.

This session is for non-domestic abuse practitioners working in Local Authority, NHS, private and voluntary sector organisations who have contact with young people. Ideal for those working in front line services as well as back office staff, students and individuals who want to understand what teen relationship abuse is and be able to provide basic information to victims.

This is a free workshop but non-attendance will incur a fee of £50. Attendees must work or volunteer within Southend Borough.
