This training is aimed at family violence professionals who work with women and children who are victims of family violence.
The Common Risk Assessment Framework (CRAF) aims to help practitioners and professionals identify and respond to risk factors associated with family violence. It was developed in consultation with Victorian family violence service providers, police and courts and based upon international research. It is the basis of the integrated family violence service system in Victoria. It provides a common language for all agencies to talk about risk assessment and promotes a shared understanding of the issues underpinning family violence.
Practitioners will have advanced skills in engaging clients around family violence matters, safety planning and case management. These professionals have family violence responses as a designated part of their job role, or work in specialist family violence services. NOTE: It is expected that participants in this course will have previously completed significant FV training and are familiar with and/or already use the CRAF tool. If you are not a specialist family violence worker we suggest you complete CRAF preliminary Risk Assessment.
