This lecture addresses the ways global youth culture can provide teachers and educators with important entre into ways that they can be more successful with increasingly diverse student populations.

Protecting People from Serious Harm: Assessing Risks from Domestic abuse and Referring to MARAC (Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference)

Applicants must have previously completed Improving our Practice on Violence against Women and Girls: Spotlight on Domestic Abuse.

MARAC (multi-agency risk assessment conferencing) is a process that identifies the highest risk victims of domestic abuse.

You and / or your staff may be asked to provide information to the MARAC or you may have serious concerns about a victim / family known to your service. This training will provide key information about the overall process, the crucial role you play in reducing risks for these families and how to use the risk assessment tool (RIC).

The learning outcomes for this course are:

  • To define what domestic abuse is and have an understanding of this in your area.
  • To have an understanding of a multi-agency approach to domestic abuse.
  • Explain what MARAC is, how it works and your role.
