Domestic and sexual violence, problematic substance use and mental ill-health are three issues which often co-exist. And when they do, things can become complicated. This course is designed to ‘uncomplicate’ matters by raising your awareness about how the three issues interlink and reflecting on the most effective ways to engage with individuals and families who are affected by these issues.
This course has been developed alongside a toolkit for professionals who work with victims or perpetrators of domestic and sexual violence who are also affected by problematic substance use and/or mental ill-health. You will find links to the toolkit throughout the course. Otherwise, you can download the full toolkit here.
Whilst girls and young women are less likely than boys and young men to be actual gangs members, research in the UK has found vulnerable young women are still at risk of becoming gang-affected through their relationships with gang-involved young men, and that the role and status of women in gangs is structured and organised. Furthermore, studies have found substantial evidence the heightened risk of experiencing domestic violence, sexual violence and sexual exploitation that vulnerable and gang-associated young women face.
This e-learning programme will help you understand the experiences of vulnerable and gang-affected young women. You will learn to identify the abuse young women are vulnerable to and learn strategies to engage and support young women at risk or or gang involved.
