Exciting News ................. The Launch Of BLUEPRINT
Over the last 10 years myself, Tammi Owen and my colleague, Max Chadwick have worked extensively developing services for men and women living with abuse.
Working with professionals, we were often asked about our work and how we have managed, over the years, to run successful groups for men and women living with abuse or displaying abusive behaviours.
So, Max and I have spent the last 12 months, after a scoping exercise with individuals, practitioners and commissioners, taking all their knowledge and expertise and developing programmes that answer the two questions often asked of us by practitioners:
Blueprint programmes are an accumulation of tried and tested modules used by Max and myself, whilst working with men and women living with abuse and hints and tips for professionals who wish to support men and women.
The professional development units develop self-awareness, confidence working with abuse and equip professionals with awareness of best practice resources to help with engagement and open up honest conversations between professionals and the people they work with.
Domestic abuse statistics show instances of abuse have rocketed over the last two years as reported by BBC news among others http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-39430629
We issued a survey on LinkedIn asking professionals working in domestic abuse to tell us their knowledge on male victims, feedback included:-
**South Wales Police – saw a 48% rise in recorded offences from 2012-13 (6,339) to 2014-15 (9,396).

What will I learn from a Heroes training programmes?
As reported in latest statistics 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will be affected in their lifetime. Without awareness of their own situation this could lead to professionals experiencing ‘burn out’, long term sickness or can present itself as assumptions or bias when working with the victims of abuse.

You may be a professional who works with families, you may be working in a supportive role with an individual within a family and want to develop more awareness on how to engage men or women to address their own personal issues.
Blueprint also offers 2 programmes for individual men and women who want to become more aware of their situation and develop tools and techniques to help themselves and move on if they wish to after living with abuse from current or past partner.
These programmes can be used together in a supported environment between a professional and an individual if they wish to do so, to support each other and encourage open communication and learning from both sides on impact on living with abuse and how professionals can support you in your choices and become more aware of what help and support is available.
