If you work with or wish to work to support people you will recognise that there are many barriers to hinder us from fulfilling our potential.

Abuse is one of those areas that many people encounter but feel helpless in knowing what to say or do to support the individual.

This course will give you an awareness of the different types of abuse or multiple abuses that your client may have had to live or is still living through.  This awareness allows you to be more mindful when thinking about working with your client or when referring them for additional support
