Event Details

This one-day interactive professional development training provides the trauma-informed information and skills needed by personnel working with people and families with experiences of domestic and family violence, past and current.

This training will workshop the principles of trauma-informed practice using case scenarios which will focus on safety (client and staff) and highlight the importance of ‘working with’ rather than ‘doing to’. The training will highlight how to apply the principles of safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration and empowerment when working with people experiencing domestic and family violence.

The training will provide participants with insights and tools to take back to the workplace which will enhance the safety and wellbeing of the people and families they support, foster recovery and minimise the risks of re-traumatisation.

Who should attend?
All staff and practitioners working with victims of DFV in any capacity, either in specialist DFV services or within generalist services to which people with experiences of interpersonal violence present for support.
