A Network Evening Recognising coercive control

Presenters Bio:

Ruth O’Dea Manager of Training & Development in Women’s Aid, has worked on issues of social justice, human rights and equality for 20 years. Ruth is a graduate of the Masters in Equality Studies programme at UCD’s School of Social Policy, Social Work and Social Justice. Her work with Women’s Aid includes the development and delivery of training programmes on best practice responses to women and children experiencing domestic violence. Training on domestic violence is of particular importance to any personnel working in a frontline capacity where they meet women experiencing domestic violence, e.g. members of An Garda Síochána, healthcare professionals, social workers, community workers and lawyers. Ruth has also worked in a frontline capacity in migrant rights NGOs in Ireland advocating on behalf of refugees, asylum seekers and migrant workers and she is a member of the Irish Council for Civil Liberties. 

Workshop Outline:

Ruth O’Dea from Women’s Aid will discuss how to recognise coercive control and what the warning signs of domestic violence and abuse are. The talk is being given in the context of the new Domestic Violence Act, 2018 and the creation of a new offence under the act of coercive control. Other changes covered by the act will also be presented.

CPD certificates will be emailed to participants after attendance at the Workshop
