The Female Domestic Abuse (Strength Based)

What is the Female Domestic Abuse (Strength Based) Hub?

This first of its kind in the UK, premium Hub, provides an online structured CBT programme to support female domestic abuse perpetrators:

  • Develop knowledge of what is considered abusive behaviour
  • Increase understanding of abuse both personally and more generally
  • Equip women with Tools needed to start to address this problematic behaviour
  • Reflect on strengths.

How does it work?

Our programmes have been carefully designed to cater for all learning styles. We achieved this by including into our programmes:

  • Audio bars for those with reading difficulties
  • Visual content such as videos and diagrams
  • Written instructions
  • Case examples
  • Skills practice
  • Downloadable content.

What topics does it cover?

This Hub users with:

  • Healthy Relationships
  • Recognising and addressing Unhelpful beliefs
  • Avoiding the use of Violence/Safeguarding against Violence
  • Minimising, denying and blaming
  • Avoiding the use of Intimidation
  • Avoiding the use of Threats and Pressure
  • Avoiding the use of Isolation
  • The Ripple Effect: Acknowledging Impact
  • Dealing with Anger effectively.

Does the Hub offer any more support?

In addition to a structured programme outlined above, users can also access:

  • 24 hours a day email support service
  • Useful Videos
  • Downloadable content including exercises and information.

How effective are the programmes?

IC LTD are the only company that have tested CCBT based approaches with an offender population in England and the Isle of Man.  To date our average results have been:

  • 71% showed a positive change in pre and post questionnaire scoring (measuring change in thinking and attitudes)
  • 78% of users would recommend it
  • 73% of users report that they found it useful.

This programme is however still in its pilot phase and results on its effectiveness are still being collated.

What happens when you finish the programme?

When the user finishes the programme, a post programme report measuring any changes is sent to the email address that has been provided.  This will also include all the information input into the programme.

"The intervention hub is a very useful tool to use with participants" "The focussed work is excellent and helps to engage the participant." "I like the structure it gives to appointments with participants- enabling them to complete meaningful work and contribute towards Rehabilitation Activity Rehabilitation days." "I like the structured format and it helps to keep sessions focused and relevant. The exercises are also clear and help to explain things to participants and use their own examples." "The anger management has helped loads of my participants"
"Intervention Hub were great to work with as a creative partner in developing and digitising existing content into ‘digital workbooks’ for our clients. They have been flexible and responsive at each step of the way, working with us for example to provide tailored reporting. I would recommend them to others."

Carwyn Gravell, Divisional Director of Business Development, The Forward Trust
"Upon completion of the Phoenix Domestic Abuse Awareness Program our service user reported the Domestic Abuse and Victim Awareness courses on the online hub were a great way to continue his learning. Based on his experience of the hub he asked if he could also complete the 'Cannabis Awareness' which he felt could be of benefit to him also."

James Lilly, Perpetrator Officer, Phoenix Domestic Abuse Services
"Just had my first Intervention Hub completer! He did the ETE course and said that he found it really useful and actually enjoyed it! He made a point of saying how it was different from previous ‘ticky-box’ courses he’s done before, as it was more interactive and goal-setting; he’s kept his own written record of his plan so that he can review his progress in the coming months."

Jon Cunningham, PSO, DTV CRC Stockton Team
"The Intervention Hub has a wide range of programmes and has been an invaluable tool to help us address problematic behaviour linked to offending with our Service Users. Feedback has shown that both Probation staff and Service Users have found it easy to use, engaging and extremely useful in structuring one to one sessions and tackling issues linked to offending. I would strongly recommend the Intervention Hub to anyone looking to work with offending."

Saphron North, DTV CRC Durham Partnerships Manager
"Working with the Intervention Hub has allowed Mid and West Wales to bridge a gap in service prevision that has long hindered our response to VAWDASV. As a Region we have had to over come barriers of rurality and isolation, while ensuring we are operating in a safe capacity. The Intervention Hub has opened doors for us to work innovatively and preventatively with the citizens across our diverse communities.
The Intervention Hub team have been incredibly supportive and proactive in enabling us to start this project from scratch and scale it up seamlessly and efficiently. The ongoing support provided is encouraging and uplifting and the willingness to work with us on development of the project has been enormously beneficial. Essentially the Hub has made it possible for Mid and West Wales to move forward in achieving the mission of our Regional VAWDASV Strategy, to improve our response to Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence and to better serve our communities in doing so. Prevention is essential and by working with the Hub, we are able to work with individuals in addressing the perpetration of abuse and preventing further harm."

Natalie Hancock, Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Regional Adviser, Mid and West Wales
