Domestic and Family Violence:
According to Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety Limited (ANROWS), “Violence against women and their children affects everybody” including family members and members of the community.
Domestic and Family Violence can take many forms. It does not discriminate and exists in all communities and societies. It can be beneficial for frontline workers and members of the general community to understand the dynamics of power and control and how the tactics used in violent relationships can impact survivors. It can be helpful to be able to identify the signs that someone may be living in a situation of Domestic and Family Violence.
To be able to respond in an appropriate and constructive manner is also of vital importance when attempting to support people who are living in violence.
All of these areas will be explored in this interactive workshop which will be held virtually over 2 lots of three-hour sessions.
Participants will be given the opportunity to:
Explore the tactics that are used to maintain power and control in Domestic and Family Violence
Discuss some of the potential impacts on survivors
Identify some of the signs that may indicate Domestic and Family Violence
Consider the importance of safety as a tool for supporting survivors and how this may be implemented.
Discuss key responses/ communication strategies when responding to Domestic and Family Violence
Explore options for providing information and referral
