Responding to Domestic Violence with a Trauma-Informed Lens for GP’s and Primary Care Providers – Virtual Classroom via Zoom
The Safer Families Centre is leading The Readiness Program, a national domestic and family
violence (DFV) training program for primary care.
As part of The Readiness Program series, Blue Knot Foundation is bringing you the latest in trauma-informed awareness and support for general practitioners and primary care
providers to recognise complex trauma and its possible health presentations.
The Readiness Program provides a range of learning options to support for primary care providers to effectively recognise, respond and refer domestic and family violence using a
trauma and violence informed approach.
- Developing an understanding of the types, prevalence, adaptations to and impacts of complex trauma (including domestic and family violence).
- Identifying possible adult health presentations of complex trauma.
- Recognising symptoms and signs with a trauma-informed lens.
- Determining strategies for working with clients who have experienced complex trauma in short-form consultations, to enhance safety and minimize re-traumatisation.
The virtual classrooms are free. However, access is only available to those who work in a General Practice, Community Health or Aboriginal Medical Service. You will need to
provide details about your workplace when you enrol.
