21apr1:00 pm- 2:00 pmUnderstanding the complexities in LGBTIQ domestic and family violence: What to look out for and how to respond (webinar)1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Event Details

This webinar is a discussion about the added complexities involved when working with LGBTIQ clients who have experienced domestic and family violence. Although abuse within LGBTIQ relationships has similarities to abuse within non LGBTIQ relationships, there are some unique differences and thus some different ways in which workers need to respond to best support their clients.

This webinar provides an overview of the scope and prevalence of abuse in LGBTIQ relationships, barriers that people face to accessing support, how professionals can improve their work practice and service and ultimately asks front line workers to put aside assumptions when working with clients in order to create a safe and inclusive space for real dialogue and positive changes.

Presented by Kai Noonan, Project Coordinator of ACON’s domestic and family violence project.


(Thursday) 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
