Overview

This course provides the foundational understanding of family violence and risk needed for further levels of specialisation.

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 is a Free at TAFE skill set. Check your eligibility.
