Teenage Relationship Abuse – It was very useful to learn of the national risk assessment tool/form for use with YP in situations of suspected domestic abuse and to learn about the issues specific to DA/DV within this age group.

Teenage Relationship Abuse – I felt that the lady who ran the course, Cathy, did so in a way that helped you to understand the point of view of the victim, to understand why they would stay in an abusive relationship, the impact it would have on the victim, and what factors would make someone more likely to be a victim. She was extremely informative and helped to realise how hard it would be for a young person to come forward about the abuse, and how I could encourage them to feel comfortable enough to speak out. She is also explained the processes to put in place to keep the young person safe, and how to make the relevant referral to get them the help they need going forward.

As a visual learner the video clips used during training were really good.
