Event description

Description

Community and Health Sectors responses to LGBTI+ intimate partner and family violence.

Understanding how to respond intersectionally.

LGBTI+ family violence (FV) and intimate partner violence (IPV) has been largely absent from government policies, as well as service responses. As a result, Engender Equality is running a forum (see below) and undertaking a scoping exercise, which aims to create a snapshot of Tasmania's community and health sectors understanding of LGBTI+ needs (in this area). This involves sector workers filling out an online survey that can be found here: https://forms.gle/c78LWu5UAsT9be5d8



Responses to LGBTI+ Family and intimate partner violence. What is an intersectional approach? Why does it matter? How can we move beyond a cisgender and heterosexual lens? What is our ethical obligation as workers, to centre questions of power and move beyond binary understandings? How can we ensure we develop models that speak to, and value, queer peoples lived experience, knowledges and cultures? In what ways is an anti-oppressive framework vital to this work?.

For more information contact: lgbtiq@engenderequality.org.au

Facilitators: Engender Equality, and National and Local panellist.

This workshop is open to community members and all interested services: AoD, Mental Health, Shelter, Youth, Education, Family Violence etc;
