Unmasking Stalking: Stalking Awareness

Essential multi-agency training; stalking steals lives and takes lives. Stalking is an insidious crime and is a pattern of unwanted fixated behaviour and should not be misconstrued as romantic. The serious nature of this crime means that it is not only psychologically damaging but can also lead to serious harm or murder.

Would you know how to support someone who was being stalked by an ex-intimate or an acquaintance? Would you know how to respond in a way that best safeguards them and doesn’t put them at further risk? If you would like to improve your understanding and your response to stalking please book onto our training.

You will learn practical strategies for sensitively responding to and engaging clients, as well as tools to effectively advocate for clients, communicate their risks and needs and improve multi-agency responses.

Supporting older survivors experiencing domestic abuse- CPD Accredited

Too often, little consideration is given to the specific needs of older survivors in the UK who are experiencing domestic and sexual abuse. Traditionally, older people have been below the radar when it comes to domestic abuse and consequently, research and policy has largely developed without them in mind. Within the 10-year Femicide Census 2009 to 2018 14% of women murdered by men were over 66 years of age. These are the femicides so what about the hidden harmed?

What we do know however is that older survivors are disproportionately at risk of serious harm, with multiple intersecting barriers.

So what does this mean for you as a practitioner?

Practical strategies for building resilience

Are you running on empty? Maintaining and building resilience can be challenging when working in the front-line services of the third and public sector. Compounding concerns are: navigating our way through a pandemic we have no control over, the growing pressure of fewer resources, hybrid working and limited funding.
