Talk to them Training

The Youth Coalition of the ACT and Relationships Australia Canberra & Region were funded by the ACT Government – Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence Office (DFSVO) to develop a training package for frontline youth workers. This training aims to support youth workers with the knowledge and confidence needed to open a conversation with young people about DFV. Youth workers are trusted people that young people engage with for support. This training will increase the capacity of youth workers to understand, recognise and respond to DFV issues, safely refer the young person and/or family to specialist DFV services, and continue to support them as they navigate the specialist DFV support system.

During the training, we will equip you with the necessary knowledge and confidence to initiate discussions about Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) with young people. Youth workers play a vital role in engaging with young people and providing them with support. This training will increase your capacity to understand, recognise and respond to DFV issues, safely refer the young person and/or family to specialist DFV services, and continue to support them as they navigate the specialist DFV support system

At the completion of this training, you should be able to understand:

• the dynamics of DFV
• how young people experience DFV
• how DFV impacts young people
• how to recognise DFV in the lives of young people
• the importance of responding to disclosures of DFV by young people in a trauma-informed manner that prioritises the safety of the young person and their family
• the need for ongoing open conversation with young people and their support network after a disclosure has been made
• the supports, services, and referral options available to workers supporting a young person with an experience of DFV.
