This course allows graduates to develop industry-related knowledge, skills and competencies to work with users of domestic and family violence to effect change. It has been developed with the Queensland Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research. You will learn about frameworks and theories which support good practice, and strategies to work with men who have used violence within their families. The course will explore the impact of culture and concepts of masculinity and how these influence behaviour. You will gain an understanding of the broader service system which responds to families affected by domestic violence, ethics to guide practice, and how policy and legislation apply to this field.
