Working toward the prevention of family and domestic violence - 9 May

Together with ThinkPrevent, Catholic Social Services Victoria is hosting a Bystander Intervention Workshop for parish personnel and leaders, and anyone wanting to make a difference in responding to and preventing family and domestic violence on Wednesday 9 May, from 6pm (for 6.30pm start) at Cardinal Knox Centre, 383 Albert Street, East Melbourne.
Dr Ree Boddé, CEO of ThinkPrevent, will speak at the workshop, which will cover:

•       Understanding family violence and violence against women

•       Promoting equality and respect  

•       Exploring bystander interventions through scenarios.

It will show you how to safely intervene as a bystander to prevent sexual violence before violence occurs. In particular, the workshop will:

 •       Challenge thinking by countering mainstream messages about gender, sex and violence

 •       Open dialogue by creating a safe environment for men and women to share their opinions and experiences about these issues

Awareness raising is utilised to develop concrete options for participants to employ during a range of work or social situations – ranging from inappropriate comments to physical abuse.

This is a highly interactive facilitated workshop, not a lecture.
