Event Details

Technology can be an important way to connect with our family, friends and community. It can also be used as a tool of abuse by perpetrators of family violence.

Technology-facilitated abuse is a growing issue in Australia. If you work in family violence, you need to understand how perpetrators are using technology, and what you can do in your role to support victim survivors who are experiencing tech-facilitated abuse.

Based on current research, information and family violence risk assessment protocols, this one-day training will help you increase your practice awareness, skills and client safety in this sometimes-overwhelming digital space. You don’t need to be proficient with technology, only passionate about keeping women and their children safe.

Who is this training for?

Family violence frontline staff, including:

  • Refuge workers
  • Family violence crisis workers
  • Outreach workers
  • After-hours crisis workers
  • Counsellors working with adult survivors and their children

This training is also important for team leaders and senior workers, as we consider practice changes required to support safer risk assessment and safety planning in the digital space.
