Workshop content

Julie will focus on learnings gained from regional reviews and highlighted in FVDRC’s Fifth Report.  It will include:

  • changing how we think about family violence
  • moving from safety planning to safety conversations
  • understanding coercive control and entrapment
  • moving from “failure to protect” narratives in child protection work
  • the impact of intergenerational trauma
