In 2015, a Royal Commission into Family Violence was established to inquire into, and make recommendations about, how we prevent and respond to family violence in Victoria. The findings make it clear that preventing and responding to family violence and violence against women is everyone’s responsibility.  

Developed by the Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria in partnership with Family Safety Victoria, Family Violence Foundations is a free, online learning package for all Victorian professionals who have a role to play. 

This includes: 
  • Professionals who are new to the specialist family violence sector. 
  • Professionals who may come across victim survivors or perpetrators of family violence in their line of work –  including professionals working in health, justice, human services and education.
  • Professionals who have a role to play in preventing violence before it occurs – for example, those who work in primary prevention, education, local government, media or recreational settings
  • Students considering a career in family violence or primary prevention. 

What you will learn: 

Family Violence Foundations will build your foundational knowledge to prevent, identify and respond to family violence and violence against women. This course provides a common starting point upon which professionals may seek to develop the skills needed to undertake their role in family violence prevention and response.

Course structure: 

Family Violence Foundations is a self-paced course consisting of 16 self-paced modules divided across four streams. Upon passing all of the quiz tasks you will receive a certificate of completion.
