In Australia up to one in three victims of family violence are male but the needs of male victims remain largely unmet even though the issue of men affected by violence in intimate relationships has been reported for many years. This is Australia’s only training program for health, welfare and community workers that provides information and strategies for working with men who are affected by violence in their relationships.

The program covers the background to the problem and context violence and abuse occurs in; the affect of domestic violence on men; strategies for working with men from a strengths based perspective; a model for working with men affected by violence; what to consider and how to build services for these men into your agency. The program is provided in a strengths based model that addresses the social determinants of health.

The cost is $220 for a one day training program, training resources and a copy of “Men’s health & wellbeing: an a – z guide”, all refreshments and lunch plus 3 month follow up support with service or resource development. Registration is open now for this program. Email or phone 0417 772 390 for a program flyer and registration form.
