Event description

Description

Violence, child abuse and child neglect are not new to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, nor are they unique to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

With funding from Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) under the Indigenous Family Violence Strategy Community Initiatives Fund, The Aboriginal Health Alliance of the Peninsula Model is working with SNAICC to deliver the 'Through Young Black Eyes - Train the Trainer' 2-day workshop for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers across the Frankston Mornington Peninsula. This is an introduction to using the Through Young Black Eyes Workshop Kit FOR ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER WORKERS when working in the context of family violence with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The workshop is on Thursday 22nd March 9.30am-4.30pm & Friday 23rd March 9.30am-4.30pm.

SNAICC has developed a 2-day workshop to support healing from, and the prevention of, family violence, child abuse and neglect and supporting the building of child safe communities and organisations. To do this, the workshop will aim to build participants’ capacity to use the Through Young Black Eyes Workshop Kit.

Learning Objectives:

The learning objectives of the workshop are for participants to:

  1. Discuss and learn about issues relating to family violence, child abuse, trauma and neglect in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
  2. Discuss the strengths in their communities which may assist in addressing these issues
  3. Identify future goals and activities they can undertake in relation to addressing family violence, child abuse and neglect in their communities
  4. Increase confidence and skills in running workshops using the Through Young Black Eyes Workshop kit, including through:
  • Clarifying the aims of their own future workshop/s
  • Designing a sample agenda for a workshop
  • Discussing the challenges in running workshops and how to overcome them
  • Trial the use of resources & activities

Putting it into Practice:

Professionals and community groups have found it particularly useful for running community workshops about:

  • What is family violence?
  • What is child abuse and neglect?
  • What is child sexual abuse?
  • What people can do to help develop a child-safe community and where to go to get information and support.

SNAICC will provide a selection of resources and handouts to participants of the program. Additional resources can be purchased, or downloaded from www.snaicc.org.au
