This qualification provides you with an accredited training program and vocational outcome if you are planning to work in, or are currently working in, a universal service role (helping profession).
This training was developed to equip professionals who do not have family violence as a core function of their role, but who may encounter victim survivors (including children and young people), and perpetrators, through their interactions with children, families and/or adults within their work. This course also provides the foundational understanding of family violence and risk needed for further levels of specialisation. The course provides the skills and knowledge required to identify and respond to family violence risk, including how to:
- adopt and comply with work practices that align with the values, policies and procedures of approved Family Violence Multi Agency Risk Assessment and Management Frameworks (MARAM).
- identify MARAM responsibilities relevant to own role, including the extent and limitations of own role in relation to family violence identification and response.
- engage sensitively and respectfully with service users.
- communicate effectively with service users, colleagues and referring services to determine and initiate an appropriate response.
- undertake identification of family violence risk for a service user in compliance with MARAM.
