Feedback from previous DFV Foundations   

  • "Thank you for putting on such an informative and interesting training session. I really enjoyed it and will be recommending it to others." 
  • "As someone who has just started learning about gendered violence, I found many aspects of the seminars have had a significant impact on how I am thinking about the nature of gendered violence, how cyclical it can often be, and what this means for different and diverse communities. It has made me especially determined to explore and address these issues in rural and remote communities, communities of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and Indigenous communities." 

Learning Outcomes:  

  1. Recognise the social, economic, political, and historical contexts of DFV. 
  2. Review work practices when recognising and responding to DFV. 
  3. Identify work health and safety considerations when recognising and responding to DFV. These learning outcomes are based on the principles of safety, respect, access and equity, human rights, intersectionality, social justice, empowerment, and accountability.
