Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence: Best Practice in Frontline & Intersecting Roles

Event description

Following family and domestic-violence informed training, the next step is to take that knowledge back to your work and implement it.

Stopping Family Violence often receives feedback from training participants that they would like to access practical, skills-based support with this next step of embedding the knowledge they gained from training into their practice.

SFV has designed this workshop with this in mind. ‘Best Practice in Frontline & Intersecting Roles’ will assist you in taking the foundational knowledge delivered in the ‘Applying a Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence Lens’ session (or similar FDSV-informed training) and embedding it into your practice.

The training, delivered over one day, is skills-based and will help you further develop your FDSV-informed practice. The session is interactive, with plenty of opportunities for discussion to maximise your learning experience. Participants can expect to practice:

  • Recognising opportunities within their role to respond to family, domestic and sexual violence (FDSV)
  • Using practical tools and skills to identify and map perpetrator patterns
  • Using practical tools and skills to recognise and honour victim, adult and child survivor strengths
  • Writing FDSV-informed documentation and referrals
  • Weaving intersectional sensitivity and responses throughout their work

Whilst specialist FDSV response providers will always play a central role in responding to FDSV, we know that, with the right support, training and information, a broad range of workforces and services can contribute and help by understanding how to recognise and respond safely. FDSV is preventable and we can all contribute to a future free of FDSV.

This training is ideal for both frontline practitioners, where the client base is specifically people experiencing or using FDSV, and intersecting practitioners, those working in fields where it is very common that the client’s presenting concern will intersect with experiences or use of FDSV, including:

  • Alcohol and other drug services
  • Child protection
  • Corrections (both community corrections and prison-based roles)
  • Court-based personnel
  • Disability support
  • Family law system practitioners
  • Family services
  • Financial counsellors, including those focusing on gambling harm
  • Generalist counselling/community-based support services
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Legal practitioners
  • Mental health
  • Migrant health/support and settlement services
  • Police
  • Primary health care

SFV take care to ensure our training workshops are safe and respectful spaces however, at times the content may be confronting or distressing and may bring up unexpected thoughts and feelings. We encourage well-being as a priority and will talk through self-care early in the day.
