Learn the basics to recognise the signs of domestic violence, respond appropriately and refer the case if necessary.
Lifeline offers two kinds of awareness sessions:
DV-aware is a 2-hour awareness session that helps raise the awareness of the public around the issue of domestic and family violence. View the awareness session outline to find out what's covered.
One Day DV-aware is a one day awareness session that is available to the public or organisations to provide a more in depth awareness session around the issue of domestic and family violence.
Brothers Standing Tall is an awareness session on family violence specifically for Aboriginal men. The session provides a space for Aboriginal men to learn and talk about family violence and its impact on Aboriginal families and start reflecting on what they can do to prevent family violence in their community.
What will I learn?
You'll walk away with some basic knowledge and tools that will guide you to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence and reflect on what you can do as an individual or group to prevent family violence.
How do I sign up?
You may sign up for an awareness session in your community via this website. Find out where awareness sessions are going to be held in your state and territory and click on your preferred session to begin the sign-up process.
How much will it cost?
DV-alert is government funded, so the training fee is waived for people from the community to attend the session. If you are working for a government or corporate organisation, find out how you can request for an awareness session for your staff through Lifeline's corporate training.
