Whole Approach System to addressing Abusive Behaviours - 'Hard to Help' training

In 2020, the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire successfully bid for funding through the new Home Office Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Interventions Fund to develop a Whole System Approach in North Yorkshire & the City of York to Addressing Abusive Behaviours working collaboratively with partners to improve the overall accessibility of immediate advice & triage to enable perpetrators of domestic abuse to receive the right support at an earlier stage to address their abusive behaviour, alongside any health & social care needs which may otherwise be a barrier to effective behaviour change.

To support this Whole System Approach to Addressing Abusive Behaviours the ‘Hard to Help’ training is now available for any frontline workers to ensure they have the appropriate knowledge and tools available to better identify domestic abuse, successful engage with perpetrators and encourage them to access support services. Currently all sessions are delivered online, with face to face delivery sessions once COVID restrictions allow. The training is delivered over a 2.5hr sessions split into 3 parts:

1) DA awareness, including ‘Rurality’ to raise awareness of the picture in North Yorkshire

2) Getting to know and understand perpetrators

3) How to engage perpetrators in support, including using DASH for identified victims

Individual workers can book themselves onto the course or team managers can arrange for their whole team to attend: https://hardtohelp.org/book-training

To underpin this training, a new Domestic Abuse Online Learning Platform is now available for all professionals to access bitesize training modules & presentations on key subject matters such as mental health, trauma, dual diagnosis, substance misuse and the impact on abusive behaviours, as well as downloadable resources to use with clients. The Platform features a Core Training Toolkit plus a log in function to allow access to the full training resources library: https://hardtohelp.org/
