In partnership with the Magistrates' Court of Victoria, we are delivering online multidisciplinary training to support the establishment of the new Specialist Family Violence Courts at Frankston and Heidelberg.

Facilitated by family violence experts Lisa French and Anthony Lekkas, this webinar aims to develop a shared understanding of:

  • roles and responsibilities in the multidisciplinary team; and
  • how to work together to provide a specialised, collaborative and problem-solving response to family violence when working in the Specialist Family Violence Court.

The webinar will be available to the teams at Frankston and Heidelberg on the following days:

Frankston:  Friday 21 May 2021
Heidelberg: Wednesday 16 June 2021

Attendance at this training is via invitation only.
