Helping hands: facilitation programme
CPD: 6 points
Helping Hands is a programme developed by Women’s Aid Northern Ireland, for professionals working with children and young people. It addresses challenging issues of personal space, safety planning and awareness of acceptable and unacceptable behaviours, not only in others but also in themselves.
NB Please note that this is not a course in which participants will be taught therapeutic interventions for children who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse. The course is educational and it draws on the theoretical perspective of protective behaviours.
Who is this training suitable for?
This course is suitable for experienced Domestic Abuse practitioners and also other professionals whose work brings them into close contact to children and young people affected by domestic abuse.
Women’s Aid members: £195
This includes a facilitators training manual and one Children’s Workbook. Additional resources can be ordered through Women’s Aid once you’ve attended the course.
