Introduction to recognising and understanding the dynamics of domestic and family violence

Family, domestic and sexual violence is a major national health and welfare issue in Australia that can have lifelong impacts for both victims and those who use violence. DFV also accounts for the primary reason for homelessness.

This workshop focuses on the importance of recognising types of DFV in families and relationships, legal and ethical considerations for responding to the incidences of DFV, understanding risk and safety, and identifying appropriate interventions and referral points for support.

This Workshop will:

  • Seek to promote a strong understanding to professionals of the dynamics of domestic and family violence;
  • Provide knowledge for application into our work practices to support individuals and families in establishing safety and reducing risk of significant harm;
  • Incorporate cultural considerations when working with families, women and children from CALD or Aboriginal backgrounds;
  • Provide opportunities to engage in applying knowledge into practice through case studies.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
