NCK has developed an online basic introductory course on men’s violence against women and violence in close relationships.

The course is cross-disciplinary and aims to increase the competency among professionals who in their line of work encounter women and children subjected to violence, and/or perpetrators of violence. The course targets social care staff but can be used by staff working in other fields, such as health care, education or law. The course is free of charge and is available to the general public.

English translation now available

The course teaches the basics about men’s violence against women and violence in close relationships and discusses

  • the extent of violence and its causes
  • the nature, mechanisms and consequences of violence
  • the normalisation and break-up processes
  • society’s responsibility and how to ask about experiences of being subjected to violence
  • violence against vulnerable groups.

An English translation of the course is now available.
