Practical strategies
to support domestic
violence victims when
your gut feel is ‘things
aren’t right’

Are you adequately equipped to identify and respond to women who are experiencing or who have previously experienced family violence?  If not, join Felicity Rorke to learn some practical strategies you can put in place when your instinct tells you a patient, colleague, family member or friend is experiencing family violence.  Her presentation will provide information about identifying the risks associated with family violence, as well as the knowledge to support women to think about their own and their children’s ongoing safety. Information will be provided on appropriate referrals to Family Violence Specialist services and best practice approaches to working with perpetrators and how services can avoid practices which collude with perpetrator tactics.
