Why is the BHSCP providing this course?

This course will raise awareness, identification and support processes of Honour Based Violence & Forced Marriage to multi-agency practitioners, enabling them to identify and safeguard those children at risk more confidently.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Define the differences between the arranged and forced marriage
  • Identify risk indicators of Honour Based Abuse / Forced Marriage
  • Demonstrate different ways to support victims
  • Assess, manage, and refer using the risk assessment process to protect & increase safety of victims and children
