Domestic Abuse Update: A Bite Size Session

Course Title:
Domestic Abuse Update: A Bite Size Session
Course Code:
DV1: Bitesized

‘Domestic abuse destroys lives. It is a cruel and complex crime that can affect anyone, leaving physical and emotional scars that can last a lifetime. No one should have to suffer the pain of this abhorrent crime, particularly at the hands of those closest to them. Children should not have to witness violence and abuse in their own homes. We have a duty to support victims and prevent people from being hurt.’ Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse Consultation Response and Draft Bill January 2019

Violent Domestic Abuse is usually easier to identify whereas controlling and coercive behaviour and financial abuse can be more difficult. All cases require professionals to work effectively in partnership to reduce the risk to victims and children and to ensure that they are effectively supported. Research and practice tells practitioners that domestic abuse has significantly harmful effects on children’s safety, welfare and longer-term life chances.
