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 Women with Disabilities Workshops
Designed for health, allied health and community frontline workers who may work with women with disabilities DV-alert workshop enables participants to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, respond appropriately and refer the case if necessary.
During the two-day practical workshop, you'll learn how to:
recognise the signs of domestic and family violence,
respond to someone subjected to domestic and family violence, and
what best practice methods should be used to refer people on to the most appropriate support service.
To be eligible to attend, participants must work or volunteer in the health/allied health, community, education, childcare and frontline capacity roles supporting the general community. Preference will be given to applicants who work or volunteer with women with disabilities.
To get a competent mark, you will be required to complete three assessment tasks successfully.
Participants marked competent will receive a Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency CHCDFV001 - Recognise and Respond Appropriately to Domestic and Family Violence apart from all the other benefits.
