              Description

              What it’s about

              You’ll 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 open to 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 Workshop is run by our experienced trainers at Lifeline South Coast.

              There are 3 compulsory assessment tasks to complete during the workshop.

              What you'll need

              Every person will need a Unique Student Identifier to enrol in the workshop.

              National accreditation

              After successfully completing the training (including assessments), you’ll receive a Statement of Attainment for the nationally recognised unit of competency CHCDFV001: Recognise and respond appropriately to domestic and family violence.
