Identifying Family Violence training is based on the Common Risk Assessment Framework Practice Guide 1 developed by Domestic Violence Resource Council Victoria and is the currently recommended entry level training program. This training is designed primarily for professionals who engage directly with clients / consumers in mainstream settings.

Identifying Family Violence Training will equip participants to:

  • Have empathy for women experiencing family violence, understand that there are a diversity of experiences and the barriers women face.
  • Ask appropriate questions to elicit family violence disclosure and understand the barriers to disclosure.
  • Refer people to appropriate family violence services and have confidence in responding to disclosures.

Training delivery:

  • The training is a single 3.5 hour session co-facilitated with two credentialed trainers. (If necessary the content can be compressed into a shorter session to meet the needs of the participating group).
  • Afternoon tea will be provided
  • Session has capacity for up to 20 participants.
