About the workshop

Domestic Violence Victoria presents a rare opportunity to join Vikki Reynolds in a dynamic and experiential workshop in Melbourne!

As the reforms from the Royal Commission into Family Violence continue to re-shape the service system in Victoria, family violence practitioners are called upon to examine and develop their everyday practices with victim survivors from a range of backgrounds and communities, many of whom face multiple, intersecting forms of oppression.

This workshop will explore what it means to work in solidarity with people experiencing family violence and intersecting oppressions, such as sexism, ableism, racism, classism, ageism, homophobia/biphobia, transphobia, etc.

Vikki will challenge us to explore how we address power, centre our ethics, and ‘walk our talk’ when working with victim survivors and within an evolving family violence service system.

DV Vic would also like to utilise this workshop as a listening exercise to see what practitioners think about incorporating these ideas into our new Code of Practice for Specialist Family Violence Services.

Who is the workshop for?

Are you a specialist family violence practitioner working directly with victim survivors?

Are you looking for new ways to bring intersectional feminism and anti-oppressive thinking into your everyday practice?

This workshop is for you!

PLEASE NOTE:

Spaces are limited.

You must register to attend this workshop.

Please no more than two registrants per organisation to ensure other practitioners have an opportunity to participate.

There are no refunds, however, if you are unable to attend you may transfer your ticket to another person.
