Event Details

Domestic Violence Victoria presents a rare opportunity for specialist family violence practitioners to join Vikki Reynolds in a dynamic and experiential workshop in Melbourne.

This workshop will explore what it means to work in solidarity with people experiencing family violence and intersecting oppressions, such as sexism, ableism, racism, classism, ageism, homophobia/biphobia, transphobia, etc.

Vikki will challenge us to explore how we address power, centre our ethics, and ‘walk our talk’ when working with victim survivors and within an evolving family violence service system.

DV Vic would also like to utilise this workshop as a listening exercise to see what practitioners think about incorporating these ideas into our new Code of Practice for Specialist Family Violence Services.
