Do you know someone experiencing family violence?
Join us for a discussion on why family violence victims need a range of support services. For people who have experienced family violence, engaging with the legal process can revive emotional reactions, leading to the need for psychological, community and sociological support. These services generally operate distinctly, yet victims can benefit from a more holistic approach that acknowledges the interplay between these providers. A multi-disciplinary, trauma-informed approach can streamline family violence services and ensure that victims receive all-rounded support.
Join our conversation to discuss how psychological and legal services can work more closely together.
