  • Two Day Advanced Training: Working with Victims & Offenders of Domestic Violence in Multiple Settings

    Two Day Advanced Training: Working with Victims & Offenders of Domestic Violence in Multiple Settings
    From $235.00

    The complexity of risk and safety shapes work with victims and offenders of domestic violence in multiple settings.

    IMPORTANT: Please be advised that due to COVID-19 we have had to change the dates for our Two Day Advanced Trainings. We have reconfigured our schedule so that these trainings continue directly on from the One Day Introductory Trainings

    This training addresses risk, culture, assumptions, and institutional impacts to help practitioners to partner more effectively with others to work towards victim safety and offender accountability. Victim/survivors need support for autonomy; many offenders can be engaged in a change process and be held accountable. Dismantling the misconceptions we have about victims' and offenders' day-to-day lives enables more effective work across disciplines to prevent domestic violence.

    Prerequisite: Introductory 1 Day Training: Responding Effectively to Victims of Domestic Violence 
    If you have attended equivalent training, please phone to discuss. 
    All training days are 9am to 4pm. 

    Topics covered include:

    • Theory-based understanding of the context of domestic violence
    • Intervention with offenders and risk reduction
    • Dynamics of gender, culture, in LGBTQ domestic violence (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer)
    • Domestic violence in different cultural settings
    • Domestic violence and people with disabilities
    • Assessing risk to adult and child victims, and how it informs safety planning
