First, the course helps addressing ones’ personal and common stereotypes in the area of domestic violence and overcoming these stereotypes. It leads towards a common understanding of the types of domestic violence (DV) then it introduces the participants to the symptoms and first signs that can be considered signs of DV and it leads the participants through the stages of the so-called cycle of violence. Moreover, it provides an overview of the legal framework to protect, assist and support survivors of DV, from an international, European point of view, provoking critical analysis and research of the local point of view. Then, with the expertise of experienced psychologists, the course offers concrete and practical information on how to assess and manage the risk connected to DV and how to properly communicate on the topic, when offering support.
