Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) Risk Assessment and Management Framework (RAMF) Training

29 Jun. 2022
Where: 
Alice Springs

The Northern Territory (NT) Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) Risk Assessment and Management Framework (RAMF) comprises evidence based information and resources to support workers to identify DFV, assess DFV risk and respond to DFV risk.

The Common Risk Assessment Tool (CRAT), an integral part of the RAMF, is an evidence-based tool to assess risk, particularly risk factors that are predictive of harm or death.

DFV risk assessment and management training has been developed to support RAMF implementation across the sector. There are two stand-alone full day workshops targeted to two different groups of workers, in line with different services’ roles in DFV risk management under the RAMF. You should choose only ONE of the workshops, based on which is the right one for you. There is no need to attend both.

Workshop 2 is designed for those who undertake comprehensive DFV risk assessment and management. It is for workers whose responsibilities under the RAMF extend to comprehensive DFV risk assessment and management. These workers usually have a DFV specialist role, or may be a representative on the Family Safety Framework (FSF).

As a result of this training, participants will:

understand their roles and responsibilities in DFV risk identification, assessment and management
identify evidence-based DFV risk factors
assess risk using the Common Risk Assessment Tool
respond to the needs of DFV victim survivors in order to increase their safety, through information sharing, mandatory reporting, referrals to the Family Safety Framework, and safety planning
define vicarious trauma and identify individual and organisational responsibilities and strategies for managing vicarious trauma
connect with a group of peers to enable collaborative and interagency practice when working with DFV victim survivors.

This training runs over one day and is free of charge with all refreshments and training materials supplied.

Registration is essential
