The MARAM Collaborative Practice training focuses on both collaborative practice and foundational aspects of MARAM that enable collaboration. The training enables participants to contribute to risk assessment and collaborate for ongoing risk management, through respectful and sensitive engagement with victim survivors, information sharing, referral and secondary consultation.
FVREE (formerly EDVOS) is offering free MARAM Collaborative Practice training sessions to Tier 2, 3 & 4 professionals who respond to family violence in the Eastern Metropolitan Region. Training will be held ONLINE using Zoom and runs for 6 hours (including breaks). Participants are required to attend the whole day.
Safe from the Start is a project initiated by The Salvation Army in partnership with University of Tasmania, Swinburne University and Women’s Domestic Violence Services. A research project by Dr. Angela Spinney (Kara FVS Board member) resulted in a training program and therapeutic resource kit. Over 1000 family violence, child protection workers, counsellors, foster carers and family and children services workers have taken part in the training.
