“Not only is coercive control the most common context in which (women) are abused, it is also the most dangerous”
Evan Stark 2007

Bespoke Training Events…

We deliver the CACE Training event direct to your organisation, on a day to suit you and for up to 25 delegates per session.

This enables you to train multiple staff in one day giving you excellent value for money.

At Rock Pool, we want to support practitioners to reduce the risk of harm domestic abuse causes for children and young people.

Better identification and assessment of coercive control can assist this.

We know that coercive control is a better indicator of risk than physical violence, however identifying coercive control still appears to be an area that practitioners find difficult to recognise and record.

Domestic abuse is a dominant factor in a significant proportion of serious case reviews published each year. The triennial review of Serious Case Reviews (May 2016) stated that practitioners are not always rigorous in assessing and following through on all identified risks of domestic abuse and that there is sometimes little analysis of risks of harm.

CACE Training

The CACE Training increases the delegates understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse. It also introduces delegates to the CACE Form; a simple tool practitioners can use to identify coercive control.

Both elements can support delegates to make intelligent based decisions on the application of appropriate thresholds and the right level and type of intervention needed.

The CACE Form can be used to aid discussion with both parents / responsible adults.

Who should attend?

This training is suitable for professionals who work directly with or manage staff who regularly case manage and assess children, young people and / or families who are experiencing or affected by domestic abuse.

This includes Family Support Workers, Social Workers, Domestic Abuse Workers, and practitioners working in Early Years settings.
