This workshop is designed for family violence workers in regional Victoria who work with LGBTIQ clients, and will give participants an introduction to LGBTIQ family violence dynamics. It will also help participants understand some of the barriers LGBTIQ people face when seeking legal protections and accessing the legal system.
The workshop will explore:
- how the diversity of LGBTIQ relationships is recognised in family violence legislation
- strategies for supporting LGBTIQ clients involved in family violence intervention order proceedings
- the importance of culturally safe referral pathways
- how to access supports for LGBTIQ people involved in family violence intervention order applications.
