    Event description

    Workforce Development Collaborative WA (WDCWA) was formed by Western Australia’s family and domestic violence and sexual violence peak bodies, Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing and Stopping Family Violence. Together, these two peak bodies have a specialised, comprehensive focus on adult and child victim-survivors and perpetrators of family, domestic and sexual violence. We are recognised industry leaders and trusted by the government, non-government and private sectors to support the long-term training and professional development needs of the specialist family, domestic and sexual violence workforce, and allied workforce.

    This course provides foundational knowledge, considerations and practice skills when working with people impacted by family and domestic violence. This course is for all professionals who come into contact with adult victim-survivor/s or people using family and domestic violence behaviours.

    Learning Objectives:

    • To build family and domestic violence informed knowledge and provide culturally safe responses to disclosures using First Nation strategies.
    • Understand family and domestic violence and coercive control dynamics, the drivers of violence against women, drivers of violence against Aboriginal women and understand family violence paid leave entitlements.
    • Understand the impacts of family and domestic violence on adult and child victim-survivor/s.
    • Identify how family and domestic violence intersects with issues of mental health, alcohol and other drugs and homelessness.
    • Consider intersectionality for people impacted by family and domestic violence and how a person using family and domestic violence may use discrimination and marginalisation to further harm victim-survivors.
    • Gain practice skills for family and domestic violence disclosures integrating First Nation strategies and case studies to increase cultural safety for participants, deep listening, yarning circles and an opportunity for contemplative and reflective awareness.
