Empowering women to take control online
Safe access to technology is crucial for women so they can stay connected to their family and friends, engage with the world, and get information and support.
The Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner and WESNET will be jointly delivering first-level training to raise awareness of technology-facilitated abuse and what can be done about it.
This presentation has been created by the Office of the Children's eSafety Commissioner and WESNET, with support from the Department of Social Services.
The presentation is a two-hour workshop for frontline and specialist staff, mainstream professionals and those volunteering in the domestic violence field.
The workshops will give participants:
- a detailed understanding of how technology-facilitated abuse can occur
- the knowledge and confidence to support women and families experiencing or recovering from this type of abuse.
We also invite participants to bring along their own device ie smartphone or tablet with them on the day, as it will be useful during one of the activities in the workshop.
Participants will be equipped to assist clients to take control of the technology they are using - to make changes to reduce technology risks, information on how to access a new phone under the WESNET Telstra Safe Connections program and enhance safety for themselves and their families.
Please note there are two identical workshops on this day 10am - 12pm and 1pm - 3pm. Please register for your preferred workshop
