Course Overview

Do you currently work in a universal services role, but Family Violence is not your direct role? Do you want it to be? This course will help make that goal a reality.

This course is an accredited training program that will give you the skills to identify the presenting risk of family violence and provide an appropriate response to help those in need.

You’ll learn the foundational understanding of family violence risk needed for further level of specialisation as well as how to manage situations where you may encounter victim survivors (including children and young people) and perpetrators through interactions with children, families and/or adults at organisations such as schools, early childhood, justice, community and health services, sport and recreation organisations and faith-based institutions.

At the end of this course, you’ll be qualified to work in the family violence sector in an industry you’re already passionate about, helping those in need with your specialised skills.

Please note, participants undertaking the course will be professionals who do not have family violence as a core function of their role.
