Description Behind Closed Doors has supported victims of domestic violence and abuse since 1997.   This CPD Certified one-day course provides training on working with adult victims of domestic violence and abuse (dv&a), integrating practical resources and interventions into the therapeutic recovery process. 

Taking an interactive, workshop approach, training will recognise dv&a as trauma and offer participants an opportunity to explore how they can apply recommended interventions within their own theoretical approach.

Delivered by practitioners and qualified Counsellors experienced in working in specialist dv&a organisations, this workshop will provide insight into the particular dynamics of dv&a and how to work with them as well as considering practical aspects of supporting victims to become survivors. 

Previous feedback includes:-
“Should be compulsory training throughout our therapeutic service. Visual exercises & tools very useful.”
"Excellent balance of encouraging participation and 'chalk and talk' . Facilitator passion shone through."
