About this Workshop (POSTPONED UNTIL February 2022)

This introductory interactive workshop is primarily intended for new staff or non-specialists who engage with families and whanau who may be experiencing family violence and associated family harm.  While several aspects of family violence will be introduced, the primary focus will focus on intimate partner violence (IPV). While the workshop serves as an ‘introduction’, feedback from more experienced staff attending has been they also found it useful to refresh and update existing knowledge.

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Consider some of the definitions, behaviours and frameworks associated with family violence
  • Consider some of the past and contemporary theories relating to IPV including the cycle of violence, power and control, and coercive control
  • Consider various factors impacting on safe practice when working with LGBTQ+, people with disabilities and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities
  • Describe the signs and symptoms associated with IPV
  • Start the ‘difficult conversations with ‘clients’
  • Responding to positive disclosures or suspected family violence
  • Have greater awareness about court orders, police orders and initiatives, and
  • Other contemporary issues, including topics raised by participants.
