WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?
This training program is for health, welfare, community workers, workers with men and anyone who wants to gain skills in working with male survivors of DV. “According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 1 in 16 men have experienced physical or sexual violence at the hands of a current or previous cohabiting partner. Many more have suffered at the hands of other family members. As hard as it is for female victims to speak up when they’re affected by domestic violence, research is showing that even fewer men are seeking help when they need it.” – Relationships Australia.
While many services have been established to support female survivors of family violence, the needs of male survivors and female perpetrators of violence remain largely unmet. No direct support services, one shelter, and very little understanding of the situation for male survivors. The course is for men and women and provides information and strategies for working with men affected by violence and presents models for assessment and working with male survivors. This is the only training of its type in Australia and New Zealand.
