Let’s talk about domestic abuse

This webinar is open to all members and forms part of a new six-part webinar series for our Let’s talk about…Boundaries and Consent campaign.

Due to the safe setting provided to patients within clinic, practitioners can sometimes be the person someone turns to if they are being abused. Additionally, due to the nature of your work, you may be able to spot signs physical of abuse. We have invited Caron Kipping, from domestic abuse charity The Dash Charity, to offer advice and strategies on how to support a person who is being abused.

This session will cover:

  • What is domestic abuse?
  • The new Domestic Abuse Act overview
  • How clients might present to you
  • Spotting the signs of a survivor of abuse and also of an abuser
  • How to support a colleague who may be experiencing domestic abuse
  • How to encourage disclosures
  • Information sharing
  • Signposting to help

This session will be recorded and made available on the Let’s talk about…Boundaries and Consent campaigns page 24 hours after the webinar. If you have any queries, please email Helen Gibb on event@acupuncture.org.uk
