Trauma Informed Care and Practice for Domestic and Family Violence Services (Level 1)

Hosted by Blue Knot Foundation

This one-day interactive professional development training provides the trauma-informed information and skills needed by personnel working with people and families with experiences of domestic and family violence (DFV), past and current.

As victims of substantial trauma, they often live in fear of, and/or experience ongoing threats or acts of violence, which severely compromise their physical and emotional safety. The trauma/s can profoundly affect their thoughts, beliefs and behaviours. It is important for all people working with victims of DFV to use a trauma-informed lens which asks: What happened to you? and to ground their individual and service practice in an understanding of the dynamics of traumatic stress and adaptive coping strategies.
