Development of MARAM Training – Working with Perpetrators of Family Violence

Family Safety Victoria has engaged Swinburne University of Technology and consortium partners, Uniting Vic/Tas and Boorndawan Willam Aboriginal Healing Service (BWAHS) to undertake the development of non-accredited MARAM training for working with adults using family violence. No to Violence will also be involved in the development of the training programs in a key subject matter expert role.  

The training package will be designed to embed Aboriginal cultural safety to ensure that it is culturally appropriate for Aboriginal workers and communities.  

The consortia will develop three non-accredited courses, one for workforces with identification responsibilities, one for workforces with intermediate risk assessment and management responsibilities and one for workforces with comprehensive MARAM responsibilities to work with adults using family violence. It is anticipated that the training will be finalised in mid-2022.
