Register for Identifying Family Violence Training and Regional Induction
Registrations are now open for NIFVS Identifying Family Violence: Responding to Women (IFV) Training and Family Violence Regional Induction.
Funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, IFV is open to workers who are not directly involved in specialist family violence service provision, but who may work with women and children who are experiencing family violence.
Through this free, half-day training, participants will increase their understanding and recognition of family violence. They will gain strategies to respond to disclosures and learn about appropriate referrals for women and children.
