Working with Victims & Offenders of Domestic Violence in Multiple Settings - Two-day Advanced Training
3 - 4 September 2020
Shine, Ground Floor, 409 New North Rd, Kingsland, Auckland
From $235 (Early bird rates close two weeks before training day)
The complexity of risk and safety shapes work with victims and offenders of domestic violence in multiple settings.
This training addresses risk, culture, assumptions, and institutional impacts to help practitioners to partner more effectively with others to work towards victim safety and offender accountability. Victim/survivors need support for autonomy; many offenders can be engaged in a change process and be held accountable. Dismantling the misconceptions we have about victims' and offenders' day-to-day lives enables more effective work across disciplines to prevent domestic violence.
