Getting to know you

We ask you to share your motivations for taking the course.

Over the past few months, we’ve been talking to a range of professionals who are all involved in supporting victims of domestic violence and abuse. Each week, they’ll help us put our learning into context with their first-hand experiences.

In this video, our course educators and practitioners introduce themselves and tell us about the experience that they bring to the course.
