The Northern Integrated Family Violence Services Coordination Team invites you to Working with Male Perpetrators of Family Violence: Reflections on Collusion training.

The training will assist practitioners to effectively identify and respond to male perpetrators of family violence by learning how to identify and resist invitations to collude. Past participants have reflected:

  • “This training has made me more mindful of the ways in which I may be unintentionally colluding with unhelpful statements by patients, by letting it go or attributing this only to their mental health disorder rather than thinking of the broader family violence framework and impact on their families.”
  • The training ensures staff prioritise the safety of women/ children at all times and therefore ultimately aims to address not just his use of violence but social belief systems that drive his behaviour.”

This training is open to practitioners in the northern metropolitan region who have attended Identifying Family Violence: Responding to Women (or similar) in the past two years. Family violence workers who focus on responses to women and children are also welcome to attend.

Developed and delivered by Ada Conroy (NIFVS Senior Workforce Development Officer and experienced men’s behaviour change practitioner), the training is designed for practitioners who may come across male perpetrators in the course of their work. It is not men’s behaviour change facilitator training.
