One of the priorities of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children is to ensure that services meet the needs of women and children subjected to domestic and family violence. DV-alert builds the knowledge and capacity of community frontline workers to provide appropriate support to women and children in Australia through a range of workshops.

Working with Interpreters
Designed for health, allied health, higher education, childcare, and community frontline workers in Australia, the Working with Interpreters workshop enables participants to work effectively with an interpreter in the context of domestic and family violence.
Please note this workshop is not designed for interpreters.
During this one-day workshop you will learn how to:
Develop skills that support you to communicate with women presenting with language barriers,
Recognise the signs of domestic and family violence,
Respond to someone experiencing domestic and family violence and
Use best practice methods to refer people on to the most appropriate support service.
To be accepted into the workshop you must have completed and gained competency in any of the accredited DV-alert workshops or eLearning.
DV-alert is government funded, so the training fee is waived for all community frontline workers to attend the course. Participants could also be eligible for financial support for travel, accommodation and staff back-fill.Find out more about our financial support and check your eligibility,
The best aspects of the training were..."the resources, that is; the workbook, videos, stories, presentation and the presenters. (My confidence has increased to) recognise the signs of DFV, being able to respond appropriately and provide appropriate referral services if consented. An excellent course, honestly one of the best I’ve attended. Thank you so much!’
