Domestic Abuse and Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) Training

Course Title:
Domestic Abuse and Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) Training
Course Code:
DV2
Description:

 Participants will develop an understanding of power, control and violence and the risks posed to both adult victims of domestic violence and their children, including multi-agency responsibilities to safeguard both adults and children from domestic abuse. 216 high risk victims of domestic violence, i.e. victims assessed as being at risk of serious violence or death, were presented to multi-agency risk assessment conferences (MARACs) in Kingston and Richmond in the 6 months to August 2015

60% of these victims had children under the age of 18.
7% of these victims were pregnant.

Participants will learn how to identify, and where appropriate effectively work with, high risk victims of violence and how and when to refer to Safeguarding services and/or MARAC, ensuring that appropriate risk management and safety planning is put in place around high risk victims of violence and their children.

NB: Participants must have completed the 'Domestic Abuse Awareness' or have a good working knowledge of Domestic Violence before attending this course.

This course is delivered in partnership with Safer Kingston Partnership and Richmond Community Safety Partnership.

  Aimed At:

This course is for all members of the workforce who work with adults, children and young people. It is a priority for Kingston and Richmond LSCB to ensure that practitioners are able to effectively and appropriately respond to domestic abuse and violence concerns.

This training session is offered fully funded to education colleagues.

  Aim:

During this training session, participants will develop their understanding of power and control and cycles of abuse, enabling more effective interventions. They will learn the function of the MARAC, and increase their confidence to identify high risk victims using the DASH risk assessment. Participants will have the opportunity to consider how to apply research including messages and lessons from domestic homicide reviews in relation to working with families facing domestic violence.

The course will explore the specific barriers to community groups reporting violence, and have an understanding of forced marriage, honour based violence and female genital mutilation as forms of violence against women.

Participants can expect to take part in an interactive workshop that includes group work, debate, exercises and dialogue to make the training an informative learning experience.

 

  Learning Outcomes:

 By the end of the course participants will be able to:

- Define responsibilities when working with victims and their children
- Demonstrate knowledge of The DASH Risk Indicator checklist
- Give an example of safety planning to safeguard victims of violence
- Detail The MARAC process
- Describe communication techniques

  Minimum Requirements:
