Family Violence /Family Recovery
This workshop is designed to provide information and activities which will help you
consider better practice while working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
peoples’ experiencing violence within their families and communities, from a trauma
informed, and a trauma specific approach.
This workshop is a blend of skill development, personal learning, and professional
practice. It uses prescribed readings, learning through role-play, group process and
discussion to develop increased understanding and skills for use both individually and
in community development approaches to violence within families and communities.
It has within it an ecological approach to promoting community participation in
addressing issues of violence within families and the community generally, through
the development of an action plan to address issues of violence related trauma within
families and communities.
