“Knowing Me, Knowing You: Domestic Violence Group Work with Women & Children”
2 day workshop by ECAV (NSW Health Education Centre Against Violence)
3-4 November 2021 in Lismore
Target Group: Experienced domestic violence workers who wish to provide or enhance group work responses for women and their children who experience domestic violence.
Course Description: This 2 day experiential course provides frameworks and practical skills in group work with women and their children who have experienced domestic violence. Within feminist perspectives, we explore how group work can be utilised to assist in the healing process, including strengthening the bond between mothers and children, which is so often fractured by the impact of domestic violence. The various group work intervention options considered promote strength-based approaches which prioritise safety for women and children. The planning and facilitation of potential programs tailored to specific target groups in participants’ work contexts are a focus of the course.
Prerequisites: Completion of at least 2 days domestic violence training and at least 1 year practice experience in this field.
Costs: NSW participants: $80 Interagency workers (government & non-government): $140 Private practitioners & interstate participants: $200
