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

The course is cross-disciplinary and aims to increase the competency among professionals who meet women and children subjected to violence or perpetrators in their work. It targets social care staff, which is 50 percent of the users’ area of work, but the course 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.

Discussion about issues relating to violence

The course teaches the basics about men’s violence against women and domestic violence and discusses

  • what particular vulnerability entail
  • 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 experience of being subjected to violence

Produced in collaboration with the National Board of Health and Welfare and national county administrative boards, the online course is based on more than 20 years of experience teaching the subject at university level. The course was launched in September 2016 and has been completed by more than 35.000 users.
