From the NZFVC

Pasefika Proud has confirmed dates for the next round of ethnic specific family violence prevention training programmes from late 2018 through 2019.

The training programme is designed to build the capability of Pacific providers and practitioners by providing training on culturally appropriate responses to Pacific individuals and families affected by family violence. People of influence in Pacific communities are also able to participate.

There are two parts to the training programme:

Part 1: What you need to know covers what defines family violence, the effect on Pacific communities, relevant legislation, the latest data, safety planning and managing risk with an emphasis on the experiences of Pacific peoples and their families. It is designed for Pacific community support workers and members of the Pacific community who are often the first people approached by Pacific families experiencing family violence. 

Part 2 offers ethnic specific programmes that address cultural approaches to family wellbeing when dealing with family violence, specific to one of the eight biggest Pacific communities living in Aotearoa New Zealand: Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Niue, Samoa, Tokelau, Tonga and Tuvalu.
