Domestic Violence Awareness Training
DV-alert (Domestic Violence Response Training) is Lifeline's free nationally recognised training program that enables health, allied health and frontline workers to confidently:
- Recognise signs of domestic and family violence.
- Respond with appropriate care.
- Refer people experiencing or at risk of domestic and family violence to appropriate support services.
These workshops are for health, allied health, and community frontline workers in Australia. One of the priorities of the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children is to ensure that services meet the needs of women and children experiencing violence. DV-alert aims to build the knowledge and capacity of community frontline workers to provide appropriate support to women and children.
