Specialist Family Safety Work in the Context of Men’s Family Violence Service Delivery
SPSW is delighted to present this training workshop, Specialist Family Safety Work in the Context of Men’s Family Violence Service Delivery, presented by Tori Cooke, a senior social worker known throughout WA and Australia in the family violence sector.
Family Safety Work is usually understood to be a specific service delivery to victim survivors of family violence in the context of men’s behaviour change and/or case management programs. Set in this complexity, there are opportunities and challenges for program delivery and direct practice that this training explores.
This workshop will review how teams work together for the purposes of family safety programs (which is either mandated or voluntary). It will canvass working through the complex professional relationships between family safety contact workers and specialist programs that work directly with men who engage in family violence.
By the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
▪ Understand the context and purpose of Family Safety Work programs
▪ Identify strategies men use to avoid responsibility
▪ Work with victim-survivors in the context of men’s services teamwork
▪ Identify collaborative practice skills in teamwork.
