CLASS SCHEDULE - Course in Identifying and Responding to Family Violence Risk

16-Feb-2021

 
The Course in Identifying and Responding to Family Violence Risk gives you the basic information you need to identify a risk of family violence to clients. It teaches you how to ask about family violence, and how to respond sensitively if someone makes a disclosure.  

 

You will gain skills and confidence in identifying and screening for family violence, as well as in identifying appropriate referral pathways for clients. 

 

The Victorian government has recently made family violence education a high priority, and all new and continuing community services students are now strongly encouraged to undertake this course. 


‘Students will need to complete [this unit] to be fully job-ready for work in a range of community settings in Victoria into the future.’ – Department of Education and Training, 2020

DURATION: The training is twelve hours in total, delivered over either three daytime or four evening classes, on weekdays or Saturdays. You will have to attend all classes.
