You will learn the factors that make someone more susceptible to domestic violence and that whilst there are risk factors for many individuals, anyone can become a victim of domestic violence.

There can be some barriers in trying to support someone who is experiencing domestic abuse, so knowing how individuals can be supported is important, this will also be covered in one of the units.
