Creating a shared understanding of family violence and best practice communication

Building a shared understanding of the complexities and dynamics of family violence is crucial to providing an integrated response.

You will hear from expert presenters and take part in interactive practical sessions designed to:

  • Create a shared understanding of family violence

  • Develop best practice strategies for communicating with victim survivors and perpetrators

Background – Royal Commission into Family Violence

In 2016, the Royal Commission into Family Violence (RCFV) recommended that Specialist Family Violence Courts be rolled out across the State as part of a broad range of reforms. These Courts involve an integrated response to family violence and rely on the effective operation of a judicially-led, multidisciplinary team.

The College has been funded to support Victoria's new Specialist Family Violence Courts through education, training and resources. The multi-disciplinary programs are designed in partnership with the local community and service providers.
