Domestic Abuse Workplace Champions Webinar
11 November @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm£70.00
About this Event
It is not always easy to detect when an employee is experiencing domestic abuse, but by recognising the abuse at an early stage it can help break the silence and encourage employees to disclose in a safe non-judgemental environment.
This course will help you to ensure all staff feel safe and supported in the workplace and promote a zero tolerance message.
The training covers a wide range of topics such as:
• Domestic abuse and the use of coercion.
• An understanding of how supporting/working alongside a victim/survivor may impact on colleagues and managers.
• Recognising the signs and symptoms of someone experiencing domestic abuse.
• Supporting an employee experiencing domestic abuse in the workplace.
• Asking the question and responding effectively to a disclosure.
• Domestic abuse policy and procedures – the way forward.
• Further resources that can be utilised after the webinar.
Who should attend the webinar – employers and HR staff, small and large organisations who want to learn how important a domestic abuse policy is, how domestic abuse can follow an employee in the workplace and stages needed for an effective safety plan, strategies for managers/ HR staff to feel confident when an employee has discoursed incidents of domestic abuse, best practice in dealing with the situation where the victim and the perpetrator work in the same organisation, and perpetrators of abuse.
The training is a recognised CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Training. Once completed, attendees will receive a CPD certificate.
Facilitator: Rebecca Matthews is a Training Manager from The Haven Wolverhampton who holds a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (ProfGCE) qualification and has over twenty-five years of experience in delivering training courses and working with women and children who have experienced abuse.
