About our domestic violence training

”Domestic Abuse: Preparing Student Social Workers for Practice”

This is a three hour workshop aimed at social work practice educators. It offers best practice guidelines on how to best support and prepare future social workers in identifying domestic abuse and supporting victims and their children effectively. We delivered this domestic abuse training at the University Campus Suffolk.

Domestic Violence Workshop at UCS. .

Below are the compliments received for the domestic violence training held at UCS.

“Excellent presentation which evoked lots of discussion.

Provided a specific perspective with cultural/ethnic minority considerations which was excellent.

Good to have handouts to take away.

Enjoyed the speaker who clearly knew their subject and could answer queries.”

Lorraine Willoughby, Workforce Development, Suffolk Social Care Services

“Really interesting. The workshop helped me to understand that ‘domestic violence’ wasn’t a ‘cultural’ act as this is something that is often said so I have learnt this is not true.” Excellent”

Jan Comas Coles – Social Worker and tutor for work based social work students.

“Interactive and interesting – generating discussion. Presented well with handouts to aid supervision, discussion with students.”

Caroline Mortiner, Independent Practice Educator
