Domestic Violence Response Training
Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury on behalf of Lifeline Australia RTO 88036 is providing a Domestic Violence Response Training program called DV-alert which provides skills to recognise, respond and refer cases of domestic and family violence.
DV-alert is a free nationally recognised training program conducted in all Australian states and territories. DV-alert is available at no cost to all health, allied health and frontline workers who are most likely to come in contact with people experiencing or at risk of domestic and family violence.
DV-alert is available in various methods:
- General Face-to-Face Workshops involve attending a 2-day participatory workshop, interacting with participants in small work groups, completing a workbook, skills assessment, and receiving a final call from the trainer as part of the assessment. Face-to-face workshops are held across all states and territories to encourage more health, allied health and community support workers to enrol in the course. View training schedule
- Indigenous Face-to-Face Workshops are specifically designed for health, allied health and community support workers working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Both Indigenous and non-Indigenous workers are welcome to enrol. View training schedule
- E-Learning is an 18-hour online course over a period of 6 to 8 weeks and involves downloading and reading online materials, working through lessons, and completing assessment questions. A qualified trainer is available to support online participants throughout the course, assess answers to the workbook and provide feedback to participants. Upon completing the course, participants will receive a final call from the trainer as part of the assessment. Register now.
- Awareness Sessions are 2 hour sessions conducted by Lifeline Centres to meet the needs of communities, specific groups and organisations around the issue of domestic and family violence. Click here for more information.
- Tailored workshops are a two-day DV-alert workshop held for individual organisations who request training specifically for their staff (minimum of 10 staff). Delivering tailored workshops is another way for Lifeline to bring the DV-alert program to as many organisations across the country directly working with families and communities.
