On average, a woman is assaulted at least 35 times before she reports an assault to the police. Survivors of domestic violence and abuse contact 11 agencies before obtaining the help they need. Domestic violence and abuse is equally prevalent among all income groups and among people from all ethnic groups.
Women who have experienced domestic violence and abuse are 15 times more likely to abuse alcohol, 9 times more likely to abuse drugs, 3 times more likely to be diagnosed as depressed or psychotic and 5 times more likely to attempt suicide.
This module is targeted primarily at those who may come in to contact with children, young people, adults at risk and/or their families during the course of their work.
The course is suitable for volunteers, practitioners and managers from the voluntary, statutory and independent sectors. All levels of staff and volunteers should consider that the course could be relevant to their work, particularly those workers who feel that they may be the first point of contact for survivors of domestic violence and abuse: e.g. a receptionist in children’s or adults services.

I liked the way the module has been prepared, very clear and easy to understand and make my own notes
I thought that it was bit more in depth than the other subjects I have covered
In my current role I have recently attended a session via IDVA workers. This course added to that information
I liked the voice facility. The module is a working tool and useful for personal skill for identifying the signs of abuse
I felt as though I retained the information as it was repeated in different formats and then tested
Very informative and the questions were helpful to show what I know
The module provides clear advise and information that would help me to identify a possible abusive situation, also enabling me to support somebody to get appropriate help
I thought the comments that were included from children etc were very helpful and obviously highlights the affect that Domestic Violence has on all aspects of a child's life. I liked the visual effects that were used as it helps to remain in your mind. The statistics were also very good to include
To date this course has been the best. Brief enough not to be a drag but detailed enough for you to have to really take note. The differing formats of information delivery kept me engaged with content and there is a clear benefit to some repetition in the modules
I liked the fact you had to click on sections of the page to gain more information on the subject instead of being all there on the page, I think it made it much easier to understand, rather than lots of information to take in one go
Easy to access and can be completed in your own time. You can print off your own notes as well
I found the module very interesting and the information was available to print off if needed, the module also directed me to websites which I could use in my work
