Technology-Facilitated Domestic Abuse – Outside Nottingham Area
February 27 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
This particular session is for delegates outside of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire area. If you work in the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire area, please see other sessions.
Technology is playing a bigger role in domestic abuse cases, especially in recent years with the advancement and accessibility of newer tech. It is becoming harder for frontline workers to keep up-to-date with the constant new ways that perpetrators of domestic abuse can use technology.
Who should sign up?
• Anyone looking to increase their understanding and response to technology-facilitated domestic abuse (i.e., “tech abuse”)
• Frontline workers, practitioners, volunteers, commissioners, managers, or strategists who need to develop team responses
• Workers who want to build and increase their confidence and skills when supporting survivors or working with perpetrators of tech abuse
This training session will:
• Provide workers and volunteers with an overview of the way perpetrators of domestic abuse use technology
• Explore how tech has advanced in recent years and the way it provides perpetrators with opportunities to control, harass and further the abuse
• Look at perpetrator’s use of tech from smartphones, to more recent technology such as smart home devices, e.g., Google Nest, Amazon Alexa, ring doorbells, spyware, and other gadgets and apps
• Explore how tech is used during the different stages of an abusive relationship (before leaving, escape and life apart)
• Look at the impact on survivors of tech abuse
• Provide tips for workers on how to recognise tech abuse and mitigate and manage risk through safety planning and safer contact
• Provide helpline information, tools, and resources for workers when safety planning with survivors
*Delegates will receive a certificate after attending this training session.*
