DV-alert Workplace Training
Nationally accredited training to help frontline workers recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, and know what to do next.
Delivery: 2 days via face-to-face classroom or virtually via Zoom
Audience: Frontline workers, 18 years +
Whether to support frontline workers and those working in various industries with people impacted by domestic and family violence, or to uphold the health and safety of their own staff, employers have a responsibility to recognise domestic and family violence as a workplace issue. Studies have shown that:
- 1/4 women and 1/13 men in Australia will experience some form of domestic and family violence in their lifetime
- 2/3 of women who are experiencing domestic and family violence are in the workforce, and it can be assumed that there are a many people in the workplace who use violent, abusive, and coercive behaviour
- Domestic and family violence impacts on the wellbeing, safety, and performance of staff.
This comprehensive 2-day training supports employers to create a healthy workplace culture that helps to prevent domestic and family violence.
What it’s about
Participants will learn how to recognise the signs of domestic violence, respond appropriately, and refer to support services. This workshop covers the scope, patterns, and impacts of violence; what to consider for diverse groups, communication, interventions, safety, referral pathways, and more.
Who it's for
This workshop is for frontline workers in Australia. This includes people who provide direct service and support to the community (paid or unpaid) in sectors like health, allied health, education, childcare, and community.
How it works
This 2-day workshop is run by our experienced trainers at Lifeline South Coast. There are three compulsory assessment tasks to complete during the workshop.
After successfully completing the training (including assessments), participants will receive a Statement of Attainment for the nationally recognised unit of competency CHCDFV001: Recognise and respond appropriately to domestic and family violence.
