Domestic and Family Violence Response Training (DV-alert) is a free national training program designed for health, allied health and community frontline workers.
Lifeline is committed to raising the awareness of Domestic and Family Violence and is holding a public Awareness session.
DV-alert awareness sessions are two-hour interactive presentation where individuals and groups can talk about the issue of domestic violence and what they can do to help make a difference.
By the end of the awareness session you will confidently:
• Identify the different signs and forms of abuse that constitute domestic and family violence
• Familiarise themselves with the Cycle of violence and Duluth wheels – power and control, equality and empowerment
• Reflect on and share what they can do if they know someone who is experiencing domestic and family violence
• Have an opportunity to network with other individuals
• Receive tools and references for domestic and family violence support and referral
This session has been funded by the National Disaster Relief Fund of the Uniting Church in Australia and the Target Bushfire Relief Appeal through their charity partner UnitingCare Australia and is at no cost to the Community of the Merimbula area.
