RAV Webinar Recording: Working with FV behaviours

$50.00 inc. GST

This pre-recorded webinar runs for 1.5 hours and can be purchased online and accessed at any time.

Family violence is a complex issue which requires opportunity for perpetrators to engage in intervention to lessen the likelihood/impact of their abusive behaviours. When a perpetrator, however, experiences a developmental disorder, consideration of how traits of the relevant disorder are critical in both assessment and intervention.

The experience of disability and traits related a disability can create a multifaceted presentation which needs to be understood from each aspect for effective assessment and intervention. This webinar presentation aims to provide an understanding of what these additional factors are and how they can impact assessment as well as important consideration for intervention programs.

This webinar is ideal for community workers, psychologists, social workers, counsellors, health workers, workplaces, PHN's, maternal health (caring professions, educational setting).

This webinar video examines:

  • presentation differences between traditional family violence perpetrators and perpetrators with a disability
  • factors for consideration when assessing for family violence risk
  • factors for consideration within intervention programs.
