PDWTP Masterclass: The Other Side of the Story: Perpetrators in Change (OSSPC) – 11.10.21
Dr Jade Levell and Dr Orlanda Harvey have been involved in an EU research project. The aim of the OSSPC project is to prevent further domestic violence and change violent behavioural patterns by increasing the capacity of Frontline workers that will further teach perpetrators of domestic violence to adopt non-violent behaviour in interpersonal relationships and understand the impact of domestic violence on them, the family and community.
The session on 11.10.21 focussed on exploring some of the findings of their research in the context, and gave participants the opportunity to help discuss some of the challenges faced when addressing the behaviour of perpetrators whilst supporting victim/survivors of DVA.
- Brief updates in Domestic Abuse legislation.
- A discussion between a social worker and a mother who experienced domestic abuse.
- What support we offer in Wiltshire BCP and Dorset.
- Social Worker practice tips and tools working with adults who are experiencing domestic abusive relationships.
