Supporting People who have Experienced Trauma
Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia offers a range of training programs to assist people to respond effectively to people who have experienced trauma.
- Complex Trauma
Training in supporting people who have experienced repeated or prolonged trauma
- Free One-Day Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Professional Development Forums in rural New South Wales
Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia have partnered with the Country Women's Association to increase awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault in rural NSW.
The aim of the forums is to provide professional development in how to respond to people who have been traumatised with evidence based approaches in order to facilitate their recovery.
The Professional Development Forums will target those who in the course of their employment may have someone say ‘I have experienced sexual assault and/or domestic violence’.
This includes, but is not limited to, health and welfare workers, emergency service workers and Police. Business leaders, industry groups and human resource units are also welcome to register. This is in recognition of the increasing role the business sector is playing in response to domestic violence and sexual assault.
Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia trainers will deliver the Forums in the following 15 rural locations across NSW. These locations (not in order of prevalence) have been selected with reference to the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics top 20 areas for per capita incidents of domestic violence in NSW:
