Free, nationally accredited training to help frontline workers recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, and know what to do next.
What it’s about
Learn how to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, respond appropriately, and refer to support services relevant to women with disabilities. This workshop covers the nature and scope, patterns and impacts of abuse; what to consider for diverse groups, communication skills, safety planning, referral pathways and more.
Who it's for
This workshop is open to frontline workers in Australia. That includes people who provide direct service and support to the community (paid or unpaid) in sectors like health, allied health, education, childcare and community.
This workshop covers the same content as our General Workshop with an additional focus on disability, and you’ll receive the same unit of competency.
How it works
This 2-day workshop is run by our experienced trainers at Lifeline centres and other locations across Australia.
There are three compulsory assessment tasks to complete during the workshop.
After successfully completing the training (including assessments), you’ll receive a Statement of Attainment for the nationally recognised unit of competency CHCDFV001: Recognise and respond appropriately to domestic and family violence. To find out more about this unit, click here or go to training.gov.au.
