More information about these webinars

New Zealand domestic violence statistics make sobering reading. Social Work in this area requires developing an understanding of the causes and symptoms of family violence alongside societal and cultural norms that allow violence to continue. This series provides ANZASW members with presentations from current research and those at the coal face of meeting the needs of the mostly women and children this issue impacts.

There is an hour long webinar each day. Follow the link above for more details and registration instructions.
