The Course in Identifying and Responding to Family Violence Risk has been developed by the Department of Education and Training in recognition of the immeasurable emotional, psychological and physical harm it causes, particularly to women and children. It has been designed to address the growing need to identify the presenting risk of family violence for service users, and provide a response appropriate to the role of universal service positions.
The curriculum has been designed for professionals who do not have family violence as a core function of their role. They may encounter victim survivors and people who use violence through their interactions with children, adults or families within their work at organisations such as schools, justice, community and health services, sport and recreation organisations, and faith-based institutions.
This course will be delivered face-to-face and online to provide for a blended learning experience. The curriculum has been specifically designed to respond to the needs of people working across different industries and organisations, particularly for a cohort who are employed in a universal services role and would benefit from accredited training to support their existing qualifications or experience.
Learners will complete self-paced online learning materials and attend online and face-to-face workshops where application of knowledge will be discussed and skills will be practices.
