About the Course

Supervision in family violence work is the cornerstone of safe and professional practice. The Family Violence Peer Supervision Framework (PSF) offers affordable supervision that builds on guidance and support within teams, creates a collaborative learning culture, and improves responses to complex cases, ethical dilemmas, and emotional challenges while working against harmful responses.

​Coure Outcome

Attendees will:

  • Be able to set up collaborative working groups that harvest the collective wisdom of the group that work to drive positive social responses
  • Uphold each other by working in a way that honours safety, wellness and dignity for each other and the people we serve
  • Be guided through a step-by-step process of setting up peer supervision and how to maintain the structure and process
  • Increase the level of family violence knowledge and understanding which informs how they respond.

Course Facilitator:

Jacki Rowles' lived experience of being raised in a violent country, fraught with racism and sexism, entrenched in her home by a patriarchal-dominant father led her to work in family violence. Since 2007, she has worked with women and children, providing counselling, group programme facilitation, assessments and individual programmes for both predominant aggressors and primary victims of violence.
