Understanding Coercive Control

An introductory course to domestic abuse, this course is aimed at individuals who may come into contact with survivors, but do not play a front line role. This will enable people to develop their understanding of domestic abuse and its impacts, and build their confidence around identifying signs of domestic abuse and the skills to respond and signpost to appropriate services.
