Introduction to Family Violence Response Webinar

This one-hour pre-recorded webinar enables practitioners to identify family violence, develop strategies to respond to disclosures and establish safety, and partner with victim survivors to undertake effective safety planning.

It is useful for practitioners who come across adult victim survivors of family violence in the course of their work and complements MARAM training, particularly for those who have not worked in the field of family violence previously.
