It’s taken longer to get stuff on screen through the end of may. We have been busy behind the scenes working with our existing students and preparing for the new students joining us in september. We have just run the last module of this year – working with adolescents as victims and perpetrators. It was great to be able to open this module up to people just seeking focused learning on working with young people. Our continuing professional development students help give us a sense of whether the content of the programme is on the money. We had two practitioners travel down from South Wales because the module content responded to their needs. Here are the dates of our open modules for next year – you can book nearer the time via eventbrite on the Goldsmiths Short Courses webpage

There are still very few universities creating this kind of learning community in the violence and abuse field. Our applicants have been saying that they want in depth structured learning AND skills that they can apply to practice. We are hoping that this blog will give more people a way to shape their learning by sharing ideas with us and with other readers. So if you are out in the field wanting to improve your knowledge and skills or share good practice please send us some content. We will consider reviews, viewpoints, reflections, practice and policy related content. We are particularly interested to know about the challenges you face in your work and how you look after yourself. Don’t make it to long – probably up to 1000 words. Be respectful, be inclusive and try to support your arguments with examples from practice, research, books or the media. Don’t shout but do join in!
