These short courses explain a few key intersecting systems you’re likely to be encountering as a family violence worker. They can be approached in any order and are designed to be easy to jump in and out of as needed. You might engage with them as a full legal induction or simply to look for answers on specific topics. Each course is made up of videos, links to further resources, factsheets and more which build on the material. They are supposed to act as a bit of a training manual – with real, practical guidance on how to help and what not to do.
