Training Courses for Professionals

04 April 2016




Jewish Women’s Aid is pleased to announce our Spring 2016 courses for Jewish professionals working with Jewish women and their families.


Whether you work in a school, a synagogue or another communal setting, you will be encountering Jewish women affected by domestic abuse. The problem is, it may not be obvious.  Domestic abuse is not just physical, and the signs can be easy to miss.

At any one time, one in 10 women will be experiencing domestic abuse.

Skills which enable professionals to support women affected by domestic abuse are essential.

If you or one of your colleagues would like to learn how to recognise the signs, in both women and children affected by domestic abuse, JWA courses are available.

The Introductory Course covers:

  • What domestic violence is (and isn’t)
  • The impact of domestic abuse
  • Why women stay in abusive relationships
  • Myths & facts
  • Case studies
  • How Jewish Women’s Aid can help you support women and children affected by      domestic violence

Course date: Thursday 5th May 2016
Venue: Finchley, N3

The Advanced Course is for professionals who have already attended the Introductory Course. This course is more detailed, and includes:

  • How to recognise someone who is experiencing domestic violence
  • The effects of domestic violence on children
  • Discussion around perpetrators of domestic violence
  • Strategies to help women affected by domestic abuse
  • How Jewish Women’s Aid works with its clients across the Jewish spectrum
  • Case studies

Course date: Thursday 12th May 2016
Venue: Finchley, N3

The cost for attending the training is £30 per delegate (a small number of bursaries are available, please contact me for information). If you would like to attend, please complete and return the booking form.

We do also run tailor-made trainings for whole professional/volunteer teams, which are very effective. Please contact me if you’d like us to come to you.

We look forward to hearing from you.
