Family Violence In A Child’s World

Family Violence in a Child’s World

Family Violence in a Child’s World is a self-paced professional development workshop that can be delivered both online (via UMFC’s Online Portal) or in group sessions. It has been specifically developed for Early Childhood professionals by UMFC’s Family Violence Child Safety Practitioners to promote children’s wellbeing through building professionals’ capacity to:

  • Understand what family violence is, how it hurts children and how it impacts their overall development
  • Explore how what we think and feel influences how we work with children who are hurting
  • Recognise and respond to children’s feelings and behaviours – hearing the voice of the child and providing safe responses to their needs
  • Understand how to work safely with children who have/are thought to be experiencing family violence
  • Use of mindfulness & reflection to help engage meaningfully with children
  • Use books and other activities to help children express their emotions safely
  • Explore barriers and strategies for talking to parents about the worries we have for children
  • Know how to talk with parents and provide referral pathways for families in a safe and effective manner

UMFC acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We acknowledge their culture is a living one, which relates to their ongoing connection to all things living and non-living on land, sea and sky. We pay our respect to their elders past and present. May our children of today lead us to a better tomorrow.
