“I wanted to let you know what a massive impact your lecture had on our students. I have just marked their work and more than 2/3 of them chose to focus on domestic abuse and all reflected on the learning and impact of your lecture on their understanding and awareness of domestic abuse. What an incredible and memorable learning experience for them which will influence their knowledge and understanding as they move forward into practice.”
