Register now to participate in our free online multidisciplinary training, which will support the transition to the new Frankston Specialist Family Violence Court, and which we are partnering with the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria to deliver.

The multidisciplinary training comprises three units, each with a different focus.

  • Unit One - Family violence: context, complexity and communication 
  • Unit Two - Here for the whole community: inclusion and equity 
  • Unit Three - Our court: understanding multidisciplinary practice 

In Unit One, family violence experts, including the Honourable Marcia Neave AO, former Family Violence Royal Commissioner, and Regional Coordinating Magistrate Gerard Lethbridge, will explore: 

  • What the new specialist court model means for Frankston; 
  • Risk assessment as a shared responsibility across the multidisciplinary team; and
  • Best practice communication with affected family members and respondents.

Units Two and Three will be delivered in early 2021.
