Current Family Violence Issues


I was recently lucky enough to be invited recently to attend training presented by Northern Integrated Family Violence Services. Understanding of family violence (FV), how to recognise it, and how to assist parties to cope with it, is a dynamic area, constantly evolving and developing. The prevalence of FV is astounding-1 in every 3 Australian women over the age of 15 has experienced physical or sexual violence and/or emotional abuse by an intimate partner! All of us working in the area of family disputes must revisit this topic on a regular basis. This training reflects current thinking around FV including some great resources to assist in understanding, communicating and responding appropriately to this issue. I have shared some of the highlights in the video below and hope that you will find of interest. Please do not hesitate to contact me at Creative Family Law Solutions if you too would like to explore this vital aspect of our work. The resources referred to can be found at:
