Understanding family violence in migrant and refugee background communities

This one day training enables participants to understand family violence within a CALD context.


Level: Foundational

Duration: One day (7 hours)

Audience:  This training is aimed at professionals who are not family violence (FV) specialists but may be working in community, health or education environments, and who deal with women experiencing FV.

If you are a FV practitioner or primarily work in a FV setting, please refer to our intermediate-advanced level training.

Note: Due to high demand, we can only accept a maximum of three staff per organisation at a training session and two students.

Learning outcomes

This training enables participants to understand FV within the context of working with migrant and refugee background communities and to respond to disclosures and make referrals.

On completion of the training participants will have developed:

  • the ability to recognise indicators of FV, respond to disclosures, create a safety plan and make referrals
  • an understanding of how culture and systemic barriers may affect a client’s capacity to seek and sustain support
  • the ability to critically reflect on the potential impact of one’s own culture on their professional practice.
