There are no course dates currently scheduled.
Who this course is for
This is a multi-agency course. It is for professionals working in Bracknell Forest in either voluntary or statuary services who come into contact with victims of domestic abuse, or who have contact with members of the general public where disclosure of domestic abuse may take place.
Before taking this course you should have a good understanding of domestic abuse issues. Introduction to domestic abuse or other safeguarding training are suitable options.
This one day course builds the confidence and skills of front-line practitioners and staff in responding to victims of domestic abuse. You will gain an understanding of:
- high risk factors for serious harm and homicide
- how to use the SafeLives Dash risk checklist (DASH)
- how to make appropriate referrals into and engage with the multi-agency risk assessment (MARAC)
The day will examine and explore:
- agency responsibility in relation to risk identification, assessment and management
- the risk identification process and the high risk factors for serious harm and homicide
- how the DASH fits in with partnership working and risk management panels, specifically the MARAC
- the MARAC process
- the benefits of proportionate information sharing and co-ordinated action planning
- the role of the Independent Domestic Violence Advocate (IDVA)
