Understanding Family Violence in Migrant and Refugee Communities | In Touch

May 24 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


Level: Foundational
Duration: One day
When: Tuesday 24 May 9:30am- 4:30pm (Broadmeadows)
Tuesday 21 June 9:30am- 4:30pm (Dandenong)

Audience:  This training is aimed at professionals who are not family violence (FV) specialists but may be working in community, health or education environments, and who engage with women experiencing FV.
Note: Due to high demand, we can only accept a maximum of three staff per organisation at a training session and two students. Registration is essential.

Learning outcomes
This training enables participants to understand FV within the context of working with migrant and refugee communities and to respond to disclosures and make referrals.
On completion of the training participants will have developed:

  • The ability to reflect on one’s own professional practice using cultural responsive principles, cultural humility and an intersectional approach.
  • An understanding of how cultural expectations, systemic barriers and discrimination may impact migrant and refugee women’s capacity to seek and sustain family violence service support.
  • An understanding of family violence, indicators and risk factors during initial client assessment/screening with migrant and refugee women.

Ability to apply culturally responsive principles and practices to disclosure, safety planning and referral processes.
