Upcoming Special Event

Perth MBC Practice Forum: Working with Men Using Violence and Abuse: Accountability in Practice

Held over 2 days, the Perth MBC Practice Forum is the first of a series of forums that begin important discussion about our work with men using violence and abuse in their families and communities.

With an increasing focus on perpetrator accountability in family and domestic violence services, AnglicareWA is bringing the following experienced and highly regarded specialists to WA:

  • Diane Coleman from BaptistCare NSW presenting a Supervision MasterClass
  • Practitioner Team from the Men and Family Centre, Lismore NSW

This forum will start with a Masterclass focusing on supervision practice followed by a “Call Me Dad” film screening and panel discussion.  The focus will then move to presentations and workshops exploring the implications of practice standards in men’s behaviour change work.  The Practice Forum will have a strong emphasis on women and children’s safety as the paramount consideration in our work with those using abuse and violence.

Highly recommended for MBCP practitioners, team leaders, child protection staff, corrective services officers, policy officers, family law consultants, drug and alcohol, mental health practitioners and those working in specialist integrated response teams, attendees will embark on opportunities to work with highly skilled and experienced practitioners and clinical supervisors.

By the end of this workshop participants will:

  • Have clarity about the importance of placing women and children’s safety as the paramount consideration in our integrated work with those using abuse and violence
  • Recognise the important role of the WA Practice Standards for Perpetrator Intervention: Engaging and Responding to Men who are perpetrators of Family and Domestic Violence in our responses to men using abuse
  • Gain pragmatic tools and skills to apply in professional work with men using abuse in their families
  • Build on and understand supervision skills and knowledge in specialist supervision for practitioners working in MBC
  • Network and share experiences across the relevant service delivery and policy sectors
