Free. Registration open to both Pacific practitioners and non-Pacific practitioners working with Pacific families.

Workforce Capability Training has been developed to target qualified Pacific practitioners such as social workers, counsellors (etc), and non-Pacific practitioners, either working specifically with Pacific families in the area of family violence or who are working with Pacific families and deal with family violence incidences or support as part of their wider work.

Key Information

Throughout the year, face-to-face, ethnic specific workshops are delivered in English.  The ethnic specific programmes give participants an in-depth insight to cultural approaches to family wellbeing when dealing with family violence.

The workshops also cover the importance of wellbeing for frontline practitioners, unpacking the cultural frameworks and the application of the theories into practice.

They will also gain an understanding of the context of Pacific families and their value systems.

Check the schedule of upcoming training (please note the Niue training was held on 12 March).
