Natalie Wyatt will lead this online session which will offer you creative ways to support your practice with children and young people.

What will I take away from this Live Classroom?

  • A reminder of the contemporary definition of domestic abuse, and changes introduced by the Domestic Abuse Act 2021
  • Knowledge of the different types of domestic abuse, including coercive control, and their relationship with complex trauma
  • An understanding of the relevance of domestic abuse to life story work and how we can frame this in a sensitive, child-centred way that does not misrepresent the abusive dynamic
  • You will also have the opportunity to reflect on what you have learned and how you will apply this going forwards
