Our training approach

At Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia, we recognise that adults bring a wealth of knowledge and individual experiences to the learning environment. Every workshop utilises adult learning principles, as per the Principles for Best Practice for 21st Century Education (Nichols, 2002).

Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia trainers are social workers, psychologists, and educators. They are experienced trainers in causes, consequences and primary prevention of sexual, domestic and family violence causes.

All facilitators are trained to safely and compassionately respond to disclosures and refer onward to state based services.

All training programs are audited regularly to ensure the information provided is evidence-based and current.

Programs can be tailored based on the needs of each organisation and can be delivered to clinical and non-clinical audiences.
