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.
DV-alert Tailored Workshops are provided up to two organisations that request training specifically for their staff (a minimum of 15 to a maximum of 22 people), and are designed for not-for-profit or community organisations that support individuals and families directly.
During the two-day workshop, participants will learn how to:
recognise the signs of domestic and family violence,
respond to someone experiencing domestic and family violence, and
the best practice methods that should be used to refer women and their children on to the most appropriate support service.
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.

I cannot speak highly enough of this course and the trainers whom provided it. I walked away from this course knowing fully well I would be able to recognise domestic violence and be able to respond appropriately. This is an extremely effective course, would love to see it spread far and wide.
