Description

Educator information session - Understanding Family Violence

Warning signs and referral pathways for Women and Children affected by Family Violence

Family Violence is recognised to be a serious and widespread problem at the local, State, National and International level, with enormous individual, community and economic impacts.

Children and young people are also affected by family violence. Exposure to violence against their mothers or other caregivers causes profound harm to children, with potential impacts on attitudes to relationships and violence, as well as behavioural, cognitive and emotional functioning, social development, and - through a process of ‘negative chain effects’ - education and later employment prospects.

The City of Boroondara will be hosting an educator forum on the warning signs and referral pathways for Women and Children affected by Family Violence

The forum will be broken up into two sessions.

Session one:

Speaker- Jelena Djurdjevic, Family Violence Regional Integration Coordinator, Regional Family Violence Partnership

  • explore ‘What is Family Violence’
  • assist educators to identify and respond to risk factors
  • introduce a risk assessment tool
  • and discuss safety plans

Session two:

  • referral pathways in Boroondara and Eastern Metropolitan region

When: Wednesday 19 October

Time: 7-9pm

Where: Parkview Room (Next to Camberwell Library), 340 Camberwell Road, Camberwell
