Aiming to introduce family violence literacy, practice skills and foundational theories, this workshop covers a range of topics necessary for identifying and responding to family violence and enhancing participants understanding of how family violence impacts young people and skills required for providing appropriate support.

Participants will be introduced to foundational family violence knowledge including an exploration of the drivers of violence, an introduction to Intersectionality and develop communication skills that support young people’s safety, dispel family violence myths and avoid collusion. This workshop will also introduce workers to the use of the Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management (MARAM) Tool from a youth AOD context, discuss adolescent-specific risk assessment considerations and provide an overview of the family violence service system.
