About the course

Build trauma-informed understanding of domestic abuse, stalking, and sexual violence support with our domestic abuse MA.

You will focus on victims, survivors, and the staff that work with them, addressing a gap within frontline service education. Therefore, you’ll ensure better results and a sustainable sector.

You will cover topics like:

  • stalking
  • coercive control
  • so-called ‘honour’ based abuse (HBA)
  • sexual violence
  • technology-enabled abuse and modern slavery
  • relevant legislation
  • skills from frontline services such as risk assessments, writing safety plans, and working within multi-agency settings.

You will learn from experts working in frontline services and the Bakhita Centre for Research on Slavery, Exploitation and Abuse.
