Domestic abuse and violence is a pattern of behaviour which is characterised by the exercise of control and the misuse of power by one person over another within an intimate relationship or a family. Domestic abuse knows no boundaries and occurs across society in different ages, gender, race, ethnicity, or religious groups regardless of sexual orientation, wealth, disability, or geography.

Domestic abuse affects men in the same way as it does women, but the barriers are different. If women still feel the ‘stigma’, it’s even harder for a man to disclose abuse. He will often live with increased fear of losing his children if he tries to take action.

This course will look at domestic abuse and violence, as well as domestic abuse facing young men specifically. It will examine what domestic abuse is and the law surrounding it. It will also identify the characteristics of a healthy relationship and the warning signs for a possibly unhealthy one.
