Trigger Warning

The content within this course deals with sensitive and, on occasion difficult topics around safeguarding and, as a result, may cause you to trigger some feelings or emotions that are upsetting. Due to the nature of safeguarding training, these topics need to be discussed. There may be lists or examples given of categories of early childhood trauma, including sexual and physical violence and neglect. Please feel free to leave the course if a particular subject triggers you and seek help and support when necessary. 

This course is separated into four modules of learning:

Module One: Forced Marriage Explained
Module one explains what forced marriage is, so we have a greater understanding as a foundation for this forced marriage and honour-based killing awareness course.

Module Two: Forced Marriage and The Law
This section will talk through how the law can support us in our work to support potential victims of forced marriage and provides an understanding of the severity of forced marriage and its relation to the law.

Module Three: Honour-Based Abuse
This module explores a little more about the specific crime of honour-based abuse and provides a deeper understanding of what constitutes this abuse.

Module Four: Case Study and Support Resources
This module walks learners through the case study of Banaz Mahmod, a real-life horrific reality of forced marriage, honour-based abuse, and Honour killings right here in the UK. It will also signpost to many supportive organisations in the UK that can provide advice, guidance and support for us as professionals as well as for victims.

Study time: 60 mins.
