Domestic and family violence includes violence against women, children, the elderly and others. Such violence is not just physical, it can include emotional, sexual, social, spiritual, financial and verbal abuse, or stalking. Domestic and family violence is abuse or violence by a partner or ex-partner or family member, and the abuse occurs in all cultures and all socio-economic groups. People who experience domestic violence are often at risk of depression and can require counselling.

What you will learn: General Workshops involve attending a two-day practical workshop where you’ll learn how to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, how to respond to someone experiencing domestic and family violence and what best practice methods should be used to refer people on to the most appropriate support service.
