One of the priorities of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022 is to ensure that services meet the needs of women and children subjected to domestic and family violence. DV-alert builds the knowledge and capacity of community frontline workers to provide appropriate support to women and children in Australia through a range of Awareness Sessions.
Brothers Standing Tall
This is a two-hour interactive presentation on family violence specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men. The presentation provides a space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men to learn and talk about family violence and the impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, giving the basis to start reflecting on what you can do to prevent family violence in your community.
What will I learn?
You'll walk away with a basic understanding of these issues, and tools that will guide you to recognise family violence, providing you with the foundations to assess what you can do as an individual or group to prevent family violence.
To be eligible for Brothers Standing Tall session, you must be an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander male, aged 16 years or older who:
is community-minded; and
see yourself as having the potential to be a role model in the community.
If so, then you can enrol in a Brothers Standing Tall awareness session in your community.
