training

Organisations and service providers are regularly seeking ways to increase the skills and knowledge of staff in relation to domestic and family violence. BDVS can be of assistance in providing tailored professional development and training sessions at the workplace. We deliver on topics such as:

  • dynamics of domestic violence (cycle of violence, power and control wheel, red flags, myths and facts)
  • types of relationship abuse
  • legislation pertaining to domestic violence, including recent changes
  • statistics of domestic and family violence
  • interviewing and screening for domestic violence (sensitive inquiry with those who may be experiencing domestic violence)
  • supporting someone who may be experiencing domestic violence
  • risk assessment
  • safety planning
  • stages of change
  • variables such as immigration, LGBTIQ and substance misuse
  • referral pathways
  • impact on victims
  • impact on child witnesses.


We utilise a variety of formats including PowerPoint and verbal delivery, educational DVD’s, group and individual activities, informal open discussion and workshops.

All training and community education sessions are supported by a range of handouts and print information, as well as helpful links to websites.
