My Connections 

My Connections is a toolkit for professionals working with young people using harmful behaviours in their intimate relationships. Prior to the development of My Connections, few resources were available to support the young people, or help them develop the tools needed to stop or prevent their use of abuse.  The toolkit has been built in a structured manner to effectively meet the needs of the young people and the professionals who support them. 

The aims of this toolkit are

  • Increase young people’s awareness of healthy relationships and their role within them  
  • Increase young people’s self-esteem  
  • Increase young people’s feeling of being in control of their life  
  • Increase young people’s ability to positively deal with their emotions  
  • Increase young people’s awareness about abuse  
  • Decrease the acceptability of young people using abusive behaviours 

 

Overall, it’s intended that the completion of My Connections contributes to reducing recidivism and promoting safeguarding of young people.

The toolkit package includes

Training in the following courses 

  • Understanding and Responding to Domestic Abuse  
  • Challenging Domestic Abuse (Working with Perpetrators)  
  • Working with Children and Young People Impacted by Domestic Abuse
