Code: ASC/22/122 Coercion and Control: A Multi Agency Workshop for Staff Working with Domestic Abuse

This course will be delivered via an Online TEAMS meeting, and you will not be expected to attend a specific venue.

This course is open to any professional who works with children, families and any adult who is or may be a victim of domestic abuse.

“Not only is coercive control the most common context in which [women] are abused, it is also the most dangerous” (Evan Stark (2007) Coercive Control. How Men Entrap Women in Personal Life. New York: Oxford University Press).

This multi agency workshop aims to ensure staff have a basic awareness, in order to identify and support victims of coercion and control in the context of domestic abuse and safeguarding adults. Now in existence for 5 years, The Serious Crime Act 2015 created the offence of controlling or coercive behaviour in intimate or familial relationships, and it carries a maximum sentence of 5 years’ imprisonment, a fine or both.

Facilitated by CGL, Sussex Police, ASC and ESSCP, this is an opportunity for staff to learn about the nature of coercion and control and how it permeates throughout society. Additionally, you will have the chance to share your own experiences with colleagues from across East Sussex, making the most of the opportunity to consider how best to deal with these challenging and complex cases.

Please note you must have completed the following 3 Domestic Abuse e-learning modules before attending:

Domestic Abuse - Foundation Module 1: What is domestic abuse?

Domestic Abuse - Foundation Module 2: Impact and building resilience, and barriers to seeking support

Domestic Abuse - Foundation Module 3: Risk identification, assessment and management

Code: ESC/22/202 Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace

This is a blended learning approach and requires you to complete some pre-course work. A link to the online learning will be sent to you by the trainer nearer the time. The work must be completed in order to become a qualified and accredited Mental Health First Aider.

The guidance from MHFA England suggests the following pre course durations

This course is for ESCC employees to train as Mental Health First Aiders to support their colleagues in the workplace. Please ensure you read the attached ‘MHFA supporting guidance and commitments’ document and the information below carefully as this contains full information about the course and the MHFA scheme.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised two day accredited training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. There are four sessions to this course, 2 on each of 2 days, and allowing ample time for coffee/comfort breaks.

MHFA training won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. The MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured Instructor accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, who are trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone whilst keeping yourself safe.
