Culturally Responsive Practice: Responding to Family Violence in Migrant and Refugee Communities

This training has been designed for family violence workers in rural and regional areas to better support migrant and refugee women and their children who have or are experiencing family violence.


Who is this training for? 

  • Are you an experienced family violence practitioner/specialist in a rural or regional setting? 

  • Do you engage with refugee and migrant clients experiencing family violence? 

  • Do you need additional training that builds on your foundational knowledge? 

This training explores the principles of culturally responsive practice, cultural humility, and intersectionality and how to apply these to practice. It explores the migration journey and unpacks some of the various issues that women from migrant and refugee backgrounds may face while accessing support in response to family violence. 

During the training participants will:  

  • Reflect on their own professional practice using culturally responsive practice, cultural humility, unconscious bias practices and an intersectional approach.  

  • Discuss how systemic barriers and discrimination may impact on clients/families from migrant and refugee backgrounds to seek and sustain service support. 

  • Explore and respond to the impacts of migration, visa status and complex family dynamics for migrant and refugee clients/families in their journey through intake, assessment, and safety planning.  

  • Apply the principles of culturally responsive practices when engaging with clients/families from migrant and refugee backgrounds experiencing multiple systemic barriers and discrimination.
