2017 Meeting dates
Southern Melbourne Integrated Family Violence Partnership (SMIFVP) is offering Identifying Family Violence (IFV) training sessions across the Southern Melbourne area.
Funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, IFV training is open to workers who are not directly involved in specialist family violence service provision, but may work with families who are experiencing family violence.
At the end of the 2.5 hour training, participants will have an increased understanding and recognition of the indicators of family violence, gain strategies to respond to disclosures, learn about safety planning and appropriate referrals.
There are sessions being run in Preston, Sandhurst,Clayton, Berwick and Pakenham as well as Dandenong on May 22nd and 23rd.
