Introduction to Working With Men Who Use Family Violence – two day training
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
Date: December 4th-5th, 2019
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Graduate Certificate in Client Assessment and Case Management (Male Family Violence)
Swinburne University of Technology (RTO Code 3059)
The Graduate Certificate in Client Assessment and Case Management is designed for practitioners who currently work in, or wish to work in men’s behaviour change (MBC) programs. In the course, you will develop specialist knowledge and skills for co-facilitating MBC groups and working alongside men who use family violence to support shifts towards transformative change. This course is experiential, embedded in the process of learning through the experience of doing. The course will explore frameworks and theories which support invitational, collaborative practice and foster deliberate self-reflection.
Key areas that are covered include:
- Theoretical and practice frameworks that invite an intersectional analysis of family violence, entitlement thinking, hierarchy, accountability and change
- Dialogue skills working alongside people who use family violence to support shifts towards transformative change
- Group work theory and dynamics
- Counter cultural co-facilitation
- Anti-oppressive and invitational assessment skills
- How our practices and interventions centre the experiences of those who have experienced violence and continuously challenge the culture of beliefs and systems which enable family violence
There are a number of assessment tasks involved as well as a required completion of a 20-week group work student placement.
