Trauma-Informed Care and Practice in Domestic Family Violence Services



Target audience: All staff and practitioners working with victims of domestic family violence (DFV) in any capacity, either in specialist DFV services or within general services to which people with experiences of interpersonal violence present for support

Course summary: This one-day interactive professional development training provides the trauma-informed information and skills needed by personnel working with people and families with experiences of DFV, past and current.

This training will workshop the principles of trauma-informed practice using DFV case scenarios and highlight the importance of ‘working with’ rather than ‘doing to’, of collaborative relationships, choice, client and staff safety and a strengths-based approach. It provides participants with insights and tools to take back to the workplace which will enhance the safety and wellbeing of the people and families they support, foster recovery and minimise the risks of re-traumatisation.

Material presented in the training will draw on research including from Blue Knot Foundation's Practice guidelines for treatment of complex trauma and trauma informed care and service delivery and other relevant research.

Professionals may claim continuing professional development hours/credits/points for their participation in Blue Knot Foundation training workshops as a self-directed learning activity.
