Domestic Violence - Councils are part of the solution

Price: $693 incl GST (Please note: you are registering for ALL three training sessions)
Time: 10am-12pm

This series of workshops, split over three, two-hour sessions, will provide participants with an understanding of what drives domestic and family violence and provide case studies and practical tools to help prevent this violence through their work in local councils.

The training is based on Change the Story, Australia’s national framework to prevent violence against women and their children, which is informed by Australian and international research. All federal and state and territory governments have signed up to this framework.

The session incorporates practical activities from the Our Watch Prevention toolkit for local government as well as supporting domestic violence leave within the workplace.

Who should attend?
Community safety and crime prevention officers, community development officers, human resources, executives and councillors.

The workshop is split over three sessions:

Session 1 – What is domestic violence
The prevalence and impact of domestic violence, drivers of gendered violence, and understanding primary prevention and key prevention settings.

Session 2 - Getting prepared
Supporting employees experiencing domestic violence, preparing for community initiatives and building a business case.  

Session 3 - Taking action
Examples and case studies of local government initiatives

The facilitator will use group discussions, council case studies and local government-oriented examples, to help you transfer your learning to the workplace.
