NIFVS provides training for workers who respond to family violence, including MARAM Collaborative Practice, Identifying Family Violence: Responding to Women and Working with Male Perpetrators of Family Violence: Reflections on Collusion.

Collaborative Practice Training:
Putting the multi-agency into MARAM

Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management (MARAM) Collaborative Practice Training is relevant to all professionals who respond to family violence. The training focuses on both collaborative practice and the foundational aspects of MARAM that enable collaboration.

Professionals will explore how to contribute to risk assessment and collaborate for ongoing risk management, through respectful and sensitive engagement with victim survivors, information sharing, referral and secondary consultation.

This is NOT risk assessment training, but compliments other MARAM modules that will be available in 2020. See the MARAM Collaborative Practice Training FAQ for more information.

In 2019, MARAM Collaborative Practice training will be held on the dates below. Fortnightly session will be available in 2020.
Online registration will open four weeks prior to each session.

Working with Male Perpetrators of Family Violence: Reflections on Collusion

Working with Male Perpetrators of Family Violence: Reflections on Collusion will assist practitioners to effectively identify and respond to male perpetrators of family violence by learning how to identify and resist invitations to collude.

The training is designed for practitioners who may come across male perpetrators in the course of their work. It is not men’s behaviour change facilitator training.

This full-day training is open to practitioners in the northern metropolitan region who have attended Identifying Family Violence: Responding to Women (or similar) in the past two years. Family violence workers who focus on responses to women and children are also welcome to attend.

In 2019, Collusion training will be held on the dates below.
