Introduction to Working With Men Who Use Family Violence – two day training

4 December at 9:30 am 5 December at 4:30 pm

Are clients blaming others or denying their use of family violence? Feeling stuck or unsure how to respond? Want to work with clients and support them to take responsibility for harm they cause? 

This interactive two day training provides workers in any community sector role with opportunities to recognise and reflect on these interactions with male clients who use family violence. This training takes our One Day Introduction to Working With Men Who Use Family Violence, and uses the second day to further explore and expand on the practical engagement skills useful for working with men using family violence. We explore the context of men’s use of family violence to understand how clients present and talk about their behaviour. With a focus on increasing safety, we unpack a conversation framework for how we balance maintaining engagement, avoiding collusion and inviting accountability and change. 

The following content is covered in this workshop: 

  • Understanding the gendered drivers of men’s family violence  
  • Understanding work practices that avoid collusion and invite accountability and change 
  • Evolving your practice to consider risk and safety with a victim survivor-centred response 
  • Collaborative dialogue skills working alongside men who use family violence to support shifts towards transformative change 
  • Fostering deliberate self-reflection in managing responses 

This training is suitable for: Community sector workers in client-facing roles. 

No to Violence also delivers this training to organisations as a full day or half-day option. Talk to us further about what might work for your organisation. Call (03) 9487 4500 or email
