Event description
This two-part series workshop is designed to provide knowledge of the complexities of work with children within the family context.

About this Event

In Australia, gendered violence most often occurs in domestic and family relationships and may take one or more forms, including emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Violence in the home can have traumatic and long-lasting impacts on children, including poorer physical and emotional health outcomes. It is now known that it is important that children and young people are kept visible during responses that impact on their lives, and have their rights and opinions taken into account.

Completing this training will build on your understanding of:

• Gendered violence impacts on children and young people

• Attachment theory and the protective parent perspective

• Risk assessment, safety, and support planning with children

• Trauma and child development

• Supporting the protective parent

Learning Outcomes

  1. Recognise DFV impacts on children and the protective parent
  2. Evaluate risk assessment and safety planning practices for working with children.
  3. Identify supportive practices for the protective parent
  4. Recognise the impact of trauma on child development

These learning outcomes are based on current research and evidence, the principles of safety, respect, access and equity and the convention on the rights of the child.

This two Part Series is held on:

9th November 2020 - 9:30am - 12:30pm

10th November 2020 - 9:30am - 12:30pm
